My name is ***** ***** I would love to help.
Please use the Add Files feature to add pictures of the watch, dial, inner case and the movement.
The serial number on a watch is on the movement (guts) and not on the case. Thank you!

Cancel my question. I don't want to buy anything at all

You may have gotten automated pop ups for calls or services, those were not from me. We can continue without all of that.

Adding photos does not cost anything.

If you are not able to add pictures, then do tell me if the serial number came from the 'guts' movement of the watch and let me know the name on the dial or the name on the movement. I can check the date of the watch that way. Also let me know what numbers and symbols are on the inner gold case.
