The width of the crystal for the Brunswick is 16.3mm.  The width of the subject watch is 20mm. That leaves less than 4mm for both sides of horizontal bezel. The width of the GS MY 314 crystal for Kinght is 14.5mm.    Mark- can you give us the measurements for the fitted Federal MT9-245 145 in subject watch?  I think this watch is too small to be the Brunswick, even thought Brunswick ad above has sub-seconds and the Knight ad does not.

Will,

24.5 x 14.5

 

The 'BRUNSWICK' Glass is slightly larger: 27.2 x 16.3 

GS MY 325

Federal MT5 272 163

W*C 3MC272 163

Which would equal to a larger Case.
