YUP!

 

Bracelet does indeed appear to be (a matching) original!? And the two- tone salmon paint, works well...

Happen to have the crystal proportions, for this "unknown" beauty???

 

Best :-)  Scott

Hmmm... It could be a ???

 

Beacon, Carrel, Chief, or Star????                

 

I'm frankly too busy at the moment, to deduce it to.... (Carrel or Star, perhaps??)

Digging for Gold? lol

'CARREL' has  regular lugs, uncovered, not hooded...You know what I mean, so it's possibly the 'STAR' which is one We have not seen to Date.

Ok... I just bought this ad a couple days ago.. check on the upper left of the men's watches.  I think that's this watch.  We'll have our answer in a couple weeks when I get home.  Plus... there's several watches I've been waiting to see the names on in this ad.  Upper Right... there's that 21 jewel Beacon wanna be.... plus a few others!

Muahahaha..

I didn't see this ad in the 1941 section.  Did it arrive?  Did it turn out to be a different year than listed on eBay?  or a different model?   Thanks

Thanks I just didn't see it.  The thumbnail on the ebay link was blue, and I didn't look at details closely.

nice ad.  $20 plus shipping.  Ouch, and thanks for sharing the ad!  Subject watch not there. Probably why this post has not been changed to date.
