I have two square watches from the early 40s, the basic square bezels measure 24.5mm x 24.5mm. The crystals measure 20.9mm x 20.9mm. I would venture that the  watches under discussion have the same dimensions. The same measurements as the Beacon, that we do have an ad for, and have ID. So many of these square watches have not been found in ads yet. I would think that the crystal books have a list of the watch names that take the same crystals, however from what I have seen you need an ad to authenticate the crystal model guess. Especially with the multitude of square watches & varient dials.

Wonder why the Blackout rectangle crystal is listed with the squares there Scott?

I'm thinking that's a typo Wayne... should be the "Blackhawk".  That shares the case with the Surgeon and the others.

What about watch "C" in the ads. We don't see a lot of it but the dial configuration is very similar to this watch isn't it? Look to the right in the ad at the beginning of this string and see what I mean.

John,

The "C" watch is the Beacon, same style dial, but it has "hooded" or "hidden"  lugs.
