bobbee,

It's interesting that someone else would also recognise the 1942 Date stamp as an Anchor, I agree.

Your Case serial number begins with a 3 coinciding with the X Date stamp on the Movement, which makes the Watch a 1943  'DIRECTOR' .

Thanks,Fifth. By the way, in the caseback,there is a extra line of print saying sterling base, Does this mean the case front is silver? Also the case is engraved exactly like yours.

Bob.

Bob,

Yes, a Gold plated Sterling Silver Bezel.

During the War Years steel was in short supply so Silver was used as a base Metal.

Just below the train bridge and to the left of the balance wheel is a small triangle. Is that what is being referred to as an anchor??
