Mark,

I just revised the 1940- 2 version of the "Physician." Did you by chance narrowly outbid me?!

Nice snipe Mark!

I put in a last seconds bid and fell way short of the final amount. I think most of the marks are on the crystal and not the dial, it should clean up nice plus it is still running! Now to find a ad and name it.

LOL,

I saw it with about 5 min. left, til auction end... Mike Holben could get $500.00 for it... so I suspect it's either a KEEPER, or at least a $295.US resale???

Figures... the only snipe I missed...

Sir Mark,

I'm not that wealthy just yet... Maybe by 2012???

And on a side note (?) did you also score the Gladiator on auction, 1- 2 days ago? (A remarkably similar case, me thinkst?)   SEE:  http://www.mybulova.com/watches/1933-Gladiator-279

Hmmm... better denote the correct movements, eh? And I presume the Physician case is a (more moderne) snap back detachable ensemble?? (Or watch out for REdials, on eBay!?!)

 

:-)  Scott

Scott,

Interesting observation on the Case, I would say it is identical.

Same Glass?

Hmmm...

I apparently don't have the specs. of the '33ish "Gladiator," just yet? However the other Gladiator takes the same glass as the Lone Eagle 3... And of course the first one is the same case as the Lone Eagle 1... Whoever has the '33 Gladiator... please post the approx. proportions, or verify IF the same crystals fit??? (And please also let ME know!?!)

 

Best :-)  Scott
