    help identifying a watch (please)

    Hi

    Going through old stuff my mum has an old watch.

    The watch is a ladies wristwatch with white face and stowa written on it, it has a leaf design strap to it, on the back it is marked R+W although the + sign looks a little like an anchor around it is Edelstahl-Boden Floralia. Walz-gold-double 20 mikron.

    I asume the last bit might mean gold plate?? but can you guys help me identify the watch and decade??

    cheers

    Without a pic I can´t help. From end of WW II to 1960 Stowa produced lot of watches, so it´s hard to tell from your description. And yes "Walzgold double 20 mikron" means gold plated. If it is mentioned that the case back is stainless steel ("Edelstahl-Boden") the case presumably is not.

    The casing is gold plated. Can you open the back and take a picture of what must be a really tiny movement? Don't use your phone this time though...
