Gorgeous ladies Tiffany & Co./Movado wristwatch believed to have been given to First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt by President Franklin D. Roosevelt for her 53rd birthday on October 11, 1937. The attractive watch has a 15-jewel mechanical movement with a 23 mm diameter off-white face, golden hour markers, blue hands, and a sub-second hand. Hand-engraved on the center of the caseback, "E.R. from F.D.R., Oct. 11, 1937," with later engraving above and below, "C.R. from E.R., Christmas, 1950." Based on the engraving, the watch was evidently gifted to Eleanor by her husband for her birthday in 1937; Eleanor subsequently gave it to their eldest grandson, Curtis Roosevelt, for Christmas in 1950. In fine condition.
