I wasn't talking about your posts in particular, Shooter, but rather all of them, including mine.  And I was, by the way, just teasing you.  Obviously, not very effectively.

no worries Lisa, I just tossed it back to you lol...I was thinking about them darkening the dial to show contrast and tried to find some example to use but couldnt... means nothing of course. If the black and white were an ad, I would say no way, as people would expect a black area on the dial, but an internal document could have been done like this. What exactly is the source of the black and white ie what is it?

I wish we had some more info to go on, very cool watches.

We need to call our next witness to address that issue.  Would Mr. Bob B. please take the stand?

It would appear that Mr. B has left the courtroom.  Fortunately, we have his prior sworn testimony, which is hereby submitted in full and duly incorporated into the official record:

After contacting Miriam Franco of the Bulova case and bracelet department about our mystery watch, this is the information she sent me. Both watches are examples from 1955. #31771 with the white dial is a BERKSHIRE. #31783 with the black dial is a AIR KING. Of course Bulova would have two names for the same watch, but at least we have some names to work with. . . . I don't know how she came up with the info? When I spoke with her on the phone she explained to me that when they moved their office they loaded all thier records into two trucks. One of the trucks contents was lost in the move. Hence the pre 1960 info is gone! I thought that was the end of it but then she called back and left a message that she found something and was sending it by mail. I didn't know untill today that she actually found a couple of names. - Mr. Bob B.

I'd go along with the darkening theory Lisa, if it were consistant over the entire Watch.

It isn't.

I think We are looking at Two different Watches. One Bezel is left Gold, One is  Black.

It's just an oinion and nothing to get overly excited about.

And Yes, Your My girl.

lol.

And if you look at the photocopy, the very outermost ring of the bezel is darkened as well. No 2 diff types or colors of gold to distingquish ...
