I tried... he didn't respond.... no wait.  On second thought... he did respond and he said the already sent out the catalog to the buyer.  So we missed it.

I see the angle of the fins that Stephen is talking about. This President here is a 1953. II aagree two different watches!  Stephen no apologies needed in a gentlemens discussion.

G' day Greg,

 

FYI... The "AB" is referencing model "A or B" and the printer of the crystal packaging or catalog, apparently didn't realize that it meant, either < > or!
