Wow Phillip that's a beauty!  It looks like a modern version of the 1928-30 Templan.

I have a model that looks identical to the above [link], but with a back marked L2. It looks like a Roderick without the engraving, right?

If you shorten your new name to "5thAveRestoration" will it fit in the name block? You may get mo betta recognition in here at least.

I have the same watch with a 10BS stamped with a circle and an x, 1943/44 however back of case stamped L0/1950. I always thought it was an Arnold guess I was wrong
