Nice watch and pics wordsmith.

Did you get the '43 date from the date code on the movement? What is the date code? Using the case serial #'s first digit (5) I would date this to '45 instead.

Can you correct the Movement Model to 8AH? Thanks.

Here is the link to the Date Code Chart:

Thank you verry much for your help. The date I provided was merely an estimate. I was unable to locate the date code on this watch. Thanks again for your help.

Spencer.... though I think we may have an ad for a Senator B in this design someplace.

I'm good w/ 1945 Spencer for now.  I also think there's a similar ad for Senator B somewhere...but can't find it now.  I'll look a little closer on Monday.
