Ok? Well I suspect someone will post one here shortly, then?? Or good luck, finding the display ad??? I just wanted the ID... This watch is an early to mid 40s design, BTW... And I'm one of a handful of people on the planet with the catalogs to date, model name and crystal identify it... It's the other side, of the technical (puzzle piece) equation.....  WST

Hi Cyberclops,

I can't say as I know what model the late Uncle Walter's watch is but I bought the same one on ebay yesterday.  As of the date stamp it is a 1940.

Here's a pic and I'll post a better one when I get it cleaned up.  Hopefully someone on here will figure it out!

Yah... I TRIED to ID this one before... however my reply (to help) was misread, by the thread poster. :-(

Just email me with the dimensions Jerin, and I'll ID the model for you, and send you a replacement crystal, if I have it in stck, and you need a new one???

 

BEST :-)  William
