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.

Sorry Fellows for the delay. Ive been busy with my $15 Holy Grail of finds. Ive finally split the case of my unknown and after combing  3ft. of carpet to recover my subsecond hand. Im adding a photo of the movement. I tried to load it on this message but it directs me to web browser instead of my personal browser. so I have added it to my published unknown listing. Oh, to have a name...Have a great Day.

I think Shawn has one too. Strange jewel count difference, possible movement swap.

1965 ad. There are several for this model in the new ads, all identify as the BB "SS".

This one is unknown for me, not 23j, 5 years off on the ad, no pictures to confirm the date of the case. It might even be Non-Conforming...

Great find. Bobbee can we see the entire advert showing the date or is that not available.

Panel to review new advert.

Lots of ads w/ similar dial.  I think if we looked at this (1967) ad straight on, the case/dial is also a match, but not the jewel count.
