Jerin,

You should be? Afterall... you have a Beacon and the ad, therefore!? I'm only correct 99% of the time, myself. (Wink...)

Wayne,

Not a Beacon?

Same Case, 17J. Only a slight variation with the dial/hands if You look closely.

 Lugs look very different to me. The lugs on the watch are raised on the case and have a sweeping dip to them, the one in the advert are smooth and rounded

The cases are the same Gents. Hands are not correct on black dialed watch, but that don't make it a Non-Beacon.

Wayne, I think the point 5th was making is that trhe cases are very different. Not the hands.

I tend to agree, the case on yours has curved ends, the Beacon in the ad above does not.

If there are other watches on this site that have the curved ends and are ID'd as a Beacon, I'd say that they have been mis-identified.

Thoughts?

Admin,

Beacon is not on the search drop-down list, but it is on add a watch.
