....please quench it buddy!  I do like the observation "EW" is the "A" on the next ad, and the "HW" becomes the "M"  It was too blurry for me to see the price differences thought, and you pointed out the second ad is probably for solid gold versions, so EW doesn't become the A w/o gold content change.  Thanks for clearing that one up too, as the mug may be frosty again very soon....

His Excellency "EW" is my call based on the mount and the lugs.

I am sure you must have a gold filled or plated expansion band in your collection of parts, just put it on and resolve the issue an we can call it the "C". 'K.

 

My vote is "EW" until you put on an expansion band old buddy. Very nice watch and kinda woke us up from the stupor we seem to have been in lately.

Mark, can you please confirm your vote on this watch. Generic or EW?

As we have conflicting variant no's in the ads for the same watch, this should be generic.

Bobbee  I thought the possible conflicting variant letters turned out to be two different watches abased on solid gold vs some non-solid gold content?

Not so Will. You misunderstood my reasoning, or misread the explanation. My meaning is the"C" and "HW" watches are solid gold, because of the words"natural gold" used in one ad to describe both cases, but in the other ad the HW becomes the M, and is described as "14K solid gold", but costs $135, the same price as the "natural gold" HW. By this reasoning I deduce the C, with "natural gold" case, would be made from solid gold, thus explaining the price difference between the C and the EW variants. But with the two ads having different numbers for the same watches, this is now redundant.
