Yes I like these a lot, great Watch - having difficulty with the 'AIR QUEEN' ID.

We were presented in the past with a list of Model Names which accepted the Crystal dimension of this bezel. - 'AIR QUEEN' was not amongst those listed.

Lady Air King, or Miss Air King  just sounds grammatically incorrect. And stupid.

Well we know what the Air King looks like and we have Air Queen in the data base so I just can't see calling this a Lady Berkshire. I don't mind one check until we can prove it either way.

With the Gents version being named the 'AIR KING' the 'AIR QUEEN' makes perfect sense I completely agree Kids, but, IMO it's odd that the Name did not appear in the list of possibilties.

Agreed it's odd, but not conclusive proof for me. I'm goin with perfect sense until proven different.

Who said that the list is complete??

As we have found in previous conclusions based on post or hearsay...we are wrong most of the time...

Its a 2 star watch ID all day long...Nice snag Bob!!

Yes, I gave it 2 Stars on the 'perfect sense' theory.

Thanks OT. Yeah I was thinking on that line too. We don't know if the list is complete. Mark who is the maker of the glass for that list and did any other makers make that size glass?
