Thanks Nola.

My '52 BB crystal catalog has the Andrew taking the MX2189 crystal which is listed as 21.8x19.0. I would say that based on the crystal specs that this is the same case as the Andrew but engraved.

Without an ad though, I have to go with Unknown.

Agree - Carlyle, I'm a bit surprised that this is the only example we have of this watch. I assumed there would be more but I didn't find any.

Nice work Emperor Bob. Hey, wait a minute, we've already ID'd one as an Emperor, you'll need a new 'handle' there good buddy.
