opens to reveal the watch face. The watch face is white with gold
numbering. The flip top had a flower design that is embedded with
diamomds. It is done in a style similar to Art Deco . The wrist band
appears to be of solid gold rather than links.
This watch was made by the Ebel Watch Company.The company was founded
in 1911 by Eugene Blum and Alice Levy.They were married and the

guidance of Eugene and Alice’s grandchildren.
