Are you sure about the 15 jewel movement? It looks like you are cornering the market on these 3818A mil watches.

I wanted a parkerized 3818A Wayne, they seem a little less common than the SS Cased version (?)

Jewel count unclear.

 I'm looking for a set of polished hands to fininsh up a 3818A project right now. I just really need a seconds hand. Other than that the watch is done. That one looks like a good base to start with.
