Any idea's?

The top watch looks like it would be very distinct with a case like that.  I saw it on Ebay and I'm really digging it.  Anyone know what it is?

They're on my Gixen.com,  "snipe" list!

 

 BTW, BOTH the Arnold and "His Excellency "XX" are in the "Search" drop down menu... I am only posting a FEW of the MANY I already have ID'd at a time... that weren't already known and/or posted here. (Wink...) So I suggest saving them to a few dozen files, getting several sets of images of each model, and then posting them, when you're such they're NEW here...

And don't snipe any "clunkers" missing winding stems, crowns, or I don't have crystals for the first dozen +/- . Dirty cases clean right up! (Ultrasonic, even Brasso and a soft toothbrush, then buff it out...) And dial refinishing is as simple as getting a $10.00 watch hands puller and parts tray, etc. Then ship to InternationalDial.com, for a repaint!

Top one has a similar case to a 1950s President but with a variant dial. The bottom is a "His Excellency' but I'm not sure of the exact model. Anyone else have any ideas?

Yah,

I have the top one headed to England, already ID'd... I'll post it, once Philip refurbs it and lists it on eBay! (The dial is fine...) The Excellency "FF" below, is a total waste of a case, w/o 4+ replates of copper, then like gold plating... (10 or 14kt., I forget which?)
