I recently inherited a watch from my Grandfather who served as a submariner during WWII. This watch was among several naval pieces but doesn't seem to fit with the rest of his things. I have tried every search term I can think of and haven't found anything even remotely close to it. It says Raleigh, Swiss, and 7 Jewels on it. No one in the family had ever seen him with it and we have zero information on it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That's a woman's watch. The target audience for an item like that would have been either a female sailor or perhaps it was meant to be marketed to the sweethearts or wives of sailors. The movement is nothing special, it's just a generic Swiss movement from that era. I know this isn't much information but I hope it helps.
