This model is actually not the Richard, from 1929, at least... which sports the very same case as the Lone Eagle No. 2... with the addition of the tell tale pair of gold plated accent bands, as does this watch case as well...

 

This watch apparently takes the KK: B651 (23.7mm x 18.0mm)  glass, as per the 1929/30 Krystal-Kraft watch crystal catalog... And I also matched it to a watchmaker friend's timepiece, as a Perfit B237/2 x 178 glass... So whatever this model IS... it's NOT the 1929 "Richard" release...

This model is not a Richard & should be marked unknown, so that we may be able to find a proper name for it.
