Additional Information: 

I've had this one for awhile, I wanted to get it entered, so here it is, a 1950 or thereabouts Academy Award, White Gold Filled case with caseback also GF. Excuse the expansion bracelet. As received, it came with a cylinder crystal, which I don't think is correct. The movement is stamped '49' and it runs quite well after its full overhaul. The curtain dial is in ok condition. The movt is a 7AK, 21 jewel with Breguet overcoil. I haven't done anything yet to the case, except for a quick polish of the bezel. It could use some more tlc, and the hands, on close inspection, are quite corroded. I do have NOS replacements for them, so will attend to that at some point.

This would be the Academy Award "W". Please note the band matches the ads exactly. Any other examples in the data base without this band are "not" Academy Award " W's " according to some members. I say that's rubbish. Next we'll have to need the ad matching faceted crystals and signed crowns for watches post 1949.
