Wow that was quick....now for a proper ID which is both accutate and conveys as much info as possible about this great watch.  Nice work!!

Did you previously say all 214H were Swiss and all 214 (no H) were USA?  That seems to be waht I'm seeing in the watch database anyway...  Please and thanks

The swiss only used "Swiss Made" 214H movements in all their watches but the USA made used the "USA" 214H movement in a few watches like the "Rail Road" watches but most USA made watches only used the "USA" 214 movements......
