Hey Terry,

 

I believe I have glass and acrylic crystals, for this model. Might you have calipers, to measure the bezel opening, within say .5 mm?

 

Best :-) Scott

Hi Scott,

Thanks much. I dropped it off at the watch repair man and have not gotten it back yet. As soon as I can, i will let you know the dimensions. Sorry for taking so long to answer.

Hi Scott,

I will try to find one of my calipers in the next day or so. I believe I am going to restore this one because of the weird face.

Thanks much,

Terry

Terry,

The Watch is a late 1950's 'SENATOR' -  unknown variant of.

Terry,

You're welcome,

Note the Case shape, bezel horizontal detail and Dial resemblence to the "SENATOR 'B'" shown in the ad above. I've seen the Case design Your Watch shows advertised as such ('SENATOR') on a vintage postcard ad but I'm currently unable to find it.

The ends of the case are the same but the sides are not as searated as the watch in the ad.

Don't know if I would agree with the Senator assesment.
