Looks like Lincoln but the sub sec register on subject watch is curved and ad has rectangle shape as well as having a different color shading. Could be a re-dial. The numerals are slightly different and that coupled with the other small discrepancies makes me say Lincoln with re-dial. The case is dead on with the ad. Very good looking watch Mark and up to your usual standards.

Super nice watch Mark, It's pretty sweet and once again you've nailed the ad. The slightly different sub dial doesn't sway my vote for the Lincoln.

A beautiful Lincoln indeed.

Very interesting to see 4 date stamps, although I cannot make them all out.

My Spanish isn't what it use to be, but it could translate to "four years in the making".  :).  

Lincoln from me.
