Fresh servicing & polish and running like a new one.

Additional Information

1951 21 j 10bm model. The only crystal to fit is a CMY 312-6 for an Academy Award Model. The case is all 10k gold filled. The date, case, 21j movement and crystal all suggest it may be an academy, we know there are plain dial varients around. I can find no adverts for this model or hardly any other models the same as. So any ideas? Excellency or Academy are the two front runners at present!

Additional Information

I've had this one for awhile, I wanted to get it entered, so here it is, a 1950 or thereabouts Academy Award, White Gold Filled case with caseback also GF. Excuse the expansion bracelet. As received, it came with a cylinder crystal, which I don't think is correct. The movement is stamped '49' and it runs quite well after its full overhaul. The curtain dial is in ok condition. The movt is a 7AK, 21 jewel with Breguet overcoil. I haven't done anything yet to the case, except for a quick polish of the bezel. It could use some more tlc, and the hands, on close inspection, are quite corroded. I do have NOS replacements for them, so will attend to that at some point.
