Unfortunately it isn't possible to identify the model reference from your pictures, the case and movement serial numbers are required.  You should also try taking photos without flash and perhaps outside in daylight.   I'm intrigued by the inscription on the back, what does it say?

good afternoon, I'll take some new pictures and I will show them. behind the clock is marked with the name of my grandfather, it was given the embassy in Argentina in 1950, I think the clock is older. thank you very much

Hi David

I have this one which looks very similar, and as far as I remember is it made in 1948, so yours could be from arround that time, which fits with your story. If you have the case numbers and movement numbers I am sure that somebody can pinpoint even more.

regards

John

Thanks for sharing the story and I hope your next pictures capture the dedication clearly.  You also asked about price and I assume you mean its value today, but that is something you will have to research on your own as valuations aren't encouraged on this forum.  Maybe someone has the catalog price list from when the watch was newly purchased and can share.

date of make. Chances are that there was no reference number as Vc didn't systematically give reference numbers to its watches in the 1940s

 

And as indicated above we don't provide resale value quotes so you will need to check the online results of auction houses for similar models
