INside the next leaf the inscription reads Case Guaranteed, the word CYCLONE inside an eye like stamp,then 10 years below that,the urn shape appears againwith the serial No 4934305. On the movement plateits stamped ELGIN NATIONAL WATCH Co, USA.,seven jewels, serial No 2560007.I do not know if it is gold or nickel plated .
