Gary,

Nice one!

Several in the database and when placed side by side with the 'AMERICAN EAGLE' of era are essentially the same, only the lugs differ.

Cracking looking model. When I first saw it I thought "that case looks like a replacement" as you still see watches designed like this today. I was suprised to find it original. Awesome watch.

According to Lisa, GS Catalogue # 43 lists that crystal as being for the Phantom and Conquerer. Since the subject watch isn't a Phantom, perhaps it could be the Conquerer? No ad to substaniate that , maybe one day.

Case does look very similar to the phantom size so that doesn't suprise me
