    Looks very nice. It is a US national production model, where the movement was made by Omega in Switzerland and the case made by a US contractor. This was very common in the 1950's.

    Rare to find these with both boxes, original band and all paperwork.

    Good luck with the auction,

    No, he means gold filled - two thin layers of gold welded to a thicker layer of brass or other base metal.

    ah like another term for rolled gold ?
    get it now, never heard of it being called that, bit of misleading though in terms of what it actually says?
    EDIT: having researched it a bit seems although it's like rolled gold it's one step up from it for durability as the gold has to be a 1/20 (5%) of the total weight

    It's very common in American vintage watches, more common than rolled gold plate, and much more common than solid gold. Of course, like RGP, it's vulnerable to wear-through.

    It is at $590.00 right now with 16 hours left do you guys think it will go much above that because it's getting pretty pricey.
