Additional Information

I'm not sure what this is.  So far, I can't see a date code.  From the case and 15 jewels, I'm thinking maybe a "round the world"?.  I'm not even sure of the year. I'm guessing based on the movement code and comparing it to others in the database.

If'll go back in to look for a symbol on the movement, but I'm not too optimistic.

Round The World: Post and Gatty

I am interested in obtaining any information about the existence of this commemorative watch, which celebrates first 'around-the-world' flight by Wiley Post and Harold Gatty. Does an AD exist? As pictured,I have secured the original box,but do not know what the watch looked like...I'm sure I've seen it, but didn't realize it's significance. Can anybody shed some light on this scarce-bird?...there is not a shred of evidence online anywhere referring/confirming the existence of this watch?!
