A square MST 253 based watch, 6 jewels, 2 Adjusts - with a 2 tone silver dial. It is in a heavily decorated case, made by the La Salle Watch Case Company. The watch most likely dates from the later 1920s, and is a close match in style for various US products of the time such as the Bulova Conqueror (later renamed the lone eagle). The corner engravings would have originally been filled, remnants of this can still be made out. The watch was most likely NOS, although there is some dial degradation/dirt from improper storage with no crystal, this has since been replaced.
