Has any one notice that since Jerrin went to Cancun, his ID skillz have dramatically vanished???

I thought for sure he would have this one nailed down by now.

Maybe hes still getting over the xs tekillya....

Yeah... when I got back from Cancun I started my new job...

For instance... next week I'll be in Michigan.... come back... week in Minneapolis.... then a week in Oklahoma... then back for 2 weeks in South Dakota.... then a week in New Mexico.

So... now ya'll know what I'm doing until the second week in May.  

I've had so little time to help ya'll out on here... but don't worry, I'm here in spirit!!

If I'm right about what crystal this watch takes (20.8mm x 20.3mm (G-S CMT277)), we're going to need an advert to tell us what it is.  There are bunches of models with the same crystal specs, i.e.:

  • Bruce
  • Cadet
  • Hancock
  • Hartley
  • Rodrick
  • Walton

Those are just the models listed in G-S Catalog No. 52.  I'm sure there are others, such as the Maxim, which is not listed in that catalog and definitely takes the same crystal.  I have three "unknowns" from 1950 alone that take that crystal, and none looks like yours, although one is quite similar.

We have ads for the Cadet, Hancock, Walton, and Maxim, so that leaves at least the Bruce, Hartley, and Rodrick unidentified. . . likely others as well.

Looks like Allerton to me.  Glad someone actually ID'ing some watches w/ these new ads.  I'm busy cutting, pasting and formatting...:)

I don't think this is the Allerton.  If you look at Shooters watches' lugs you see they're stepped with like 3 steps.  The Allertons don't look stepped.  I've seen solid lugs like these on some other unknown though.
