My latest find. Whats her name fellows. 3 diamonds at 9, 12, and 3:00.  Could she be a Beau.  I found her at the Flea Market for a whopping $5. with a cracked yellow crystal,subsecond hand floating around  detached, crown wouldnt budge and dial  was water stained.  But shes looking good and running strong.

Hi Doug,

Sorry, I sold it. I'll go through my archived pics to see if I can find it for you. We speculated it could be a Beau but found no conclusive evidence. Unknown for now.

Possibly from the Lancelot series. More information about the watch needed.

Looks a lot like the Launcelot "A" but with "dot" hour markers instead of "darts", and the dial has been cleaned of any paint by the look of it.

Shawn..Seen yours on Watchophillia..Very nice....
Bobbee, your correct on the stripping..it was water stained so bad..I was curious and took my girls fingernail polish remover to it..Lancelot, I guess the Armor look is appropriate..Just dont know how long my dial will last naked like that. I think she has some clear in the box of nail goodies..lol, any suggestions..Have a great weekend fellows

You may want to consider sending it out for a redial, $50.00 or so...it would be money well spent...it may very well be a Beau...at least I would give it a tentative, there were about 70 different "Beau's" available according to the '61 price list and they sold from $89.50 on up to $400.00 in 1961!
