Scott,

Indeed, there's a 'BLACKOUT' showing with the same Crystal dimension as the unkown?

'CARREL' was very close on this one, have yet to see a 'WESTCHESTER'.

So.. we rule out the Beacon... the Chief... and the Surgeon...

This is a picture of the 1942 Westchester via watchcrystals/el-oose

 

Could possibly be a variant of the Carrel?  Though the only Carrel we show has a 17 Jewel..

I have this one dated 1942 with a 21 jewel 10AK, which I had tentatively ID'd as a Carrel from the 1942 ad. Sure looks like the right case, just with a dial variant. . . and different hands and 21 jewels instead of 17.  It does have the silver dial specified in the ad.

GREAT! I was wondering about these!?!

And where is this ad snippet from? The "C" model is the same as the "unknown," BTW?!

ad again states 17Jewels and the bezel engraving part is yet another variant to the basics of the unknown (s).

That's what I was hoping as well Lisa... but am I detecting scrolling down the sides of the Carrels bezel?  Always a bad sign when we're looking to nail down an ID.  Scrolled vs. Non-Scrolled cases... boo.

 

Hrmm... I'll have to look but I think it was the same one Mark.

Yeah... after finding it, it was the same ad... just the non-colored version.  Made the scrolling a little less noticable.

I do however think Lisa and I have the same watch with a dial variant.  We just dunno what that watch is as of yet!
