Didn't the Conqueror 10A have 17 jewels?

Good question.  I gotta look at examples of watches and the ads we have..... I don't remember offhand....and it wouldn't impact my ID of Conqueror for this example...  I don't think we have anything saying it would be something else based on the jewel difference...if it's even in the ads or other comparable watch records.

Turned out fantastic!

Here's the 'before' pic Stephen - they are the hands that came with it.

Now - after having spent some quality time this morning with this watch, I have an apology. The case serial was misidentified - it IS 6518270 - my bad reading the partial '6' as an '8'. The open 9 on the dial got me to thinking it had to be a 1926, it is. Yes, it is 15J

SO - back to Trojan are we? I think so.....I have updated the dates, I cannot change the name.

If the case and movement indicate 1926 then a Trojan it is. Any chance of a photo if the back inside case.

Is there a watchmaker on EARTH whose codes do NOT appear here? If so, please step forward.
