Additional Information: 

This 1941 Corrigan sports a 17 jewel, 10AX movment.  It has a variant dial from the earlier version of the Corrigan.

This particular watch was pretty filthy... it cleaned up without to much trouble.  The wrong hands were also replaced with the correct modern hands for this watch.

The dial seems a little off center and unfortunately the crown is rusted on it's end and will need replacement.

Plains... This was an older format record, and the jewel count was entered in the movement model dropdown field.  I corrected the movement model field by removing the jewel count, then selected 17 Jewels from the dropdown for jewel count- to clean up the record for searching etc...  I don't think this minor correction would remove existing tick count, and it was just an old record which few people had seen or voted.  My "edit" caused the watch to show up at the top of the New/Updated Watches list, which I had forgotten would happen.  Now it's available for more to vote on though.

That one really cleaned up good.  Was it simply a good wiping w/ a gold cloth?  or did you disassemble and clean?  Nice job!

I did disassemble but still only used a gold cleaning cloth after a little dawn dish soap with a childrens soft toothbrush.

Have you still got this one Jerin? Looks like the top came off the crown, and the crown looks slightly off centre, the same as the dial so it might only need re-seating the movement properly to square it up.
