Additional Information: 

This one has me mystified, so I'll throw it out to the panel. It came to me represented as new old stock, and condition would say that's true. The case (M8)  is like a mirror and measures 27.3mm not counting the crown. It is tagged as an Aeronaut H 17 jewel stainless steel. No pics of movement, as I don't want to risk marking the perfect case. I find nothing in the database under the tag info and find no other configurations like this called anything else either. Box is also one I have never seen with this style of lettering. It is curious that the watch doesn't have a second hand and under magnification it is obvious it never had one. Whatsit?

 I'm just guessing that the case was made by Star because the only crystal I found that would fit it is listed as a Star crystal. There's no stamping to indicate gold content and the stainless back is blank inside.

hello i finished this watch a couple days ago..i cleaned serviced the movement..polished and buffed the case..broke a staff..replaced the balance complete..the watch is running and keeping great time...off about a minute a day,i didn't see anything more than that...we talked about this watch but i don't think a name was ever decided upon...the movement is an A9 17 8ae which matches the case....went i bought the watch the dial looked like it was in better condition, but the seller 'forgot" to mention how bad it was..i still would have bought the watch anyway...the watch came from england thats about all i know about the history,case gold filled stainless back...if anyone has a better dial for this watch i would be interested in buying one..when i got the watch it didn't have a stem also i changed the mainspring...
