Plaines,

I acquired this one on Dec 12 on ebay. It's a 1940 10AX 17jewel. Same basic watch I think, with subtle neuances like the hands & lug covers.

That's the only one i've seen even comes remotely close.  Wondering if mine isn't actually this Beacon dial put on another watch.  I've not seen another 21 Jewel watch like this.  I've seen several of the 17 Jewel.
