Additional Information: 

I recently acquired this 1954 Mr. Universe or at least I hope it will be eventually. Presently it has a 1948 7AK 21 jewel movement in it that needs work, but I'm wanting to put a correct movement in it if you guys can help me determine what that might be. I have only seen a few of this model and I think it will be worth the effort to put it back to original again. The hands should be the dauphine style and I'm not sure about the dial. I've seen them with all numbers and with 3 numbers and hash marks like the one in the 1955 ad I'm posting.
