Additional Information

This watch was in my fathers things I went through after his passing. The watch is rectangular in a "10K gold filled" case, stamped on back, and also on back, opposite side is "6851010". The crystal had come loose and was taped on. The face has some discoloration but all there. The 3 hands, hour, minutes, and small second hand at bottom of face, are there and it will run for short periods but stops soon after. The band is brown leather with "GEMFX calf" stamped on back of band.  The movement has "21 jewels" stamped on it and a rectangle with "7AK" inside of it and a small square. Scratched inside the case back is "8-18-50" with a large flourish. under that is scratched "E9/17/54B" I am exicited to learn all I can about this watch, it could be my grandfathers, it's age will give me more clues.

Nice men's American Eagle here with matching date stamp and case number.

It's sporting a period B/R Bracelet, and I'm betting it came with it.

This is a watch i wanted for a long time and found it on Ebay.  It is my birth year watch and is what I believe to be a.1964 American Eagle F.   It is yellow gold plated.  It is marked M4 on both the case back and the movement.   I love the textured linen case, sheild dial with concentric ridges and star burst lines.  It has some discoloration on the dial and a replaced crown.

Additional Information

1964 American Eagle "F". Style-wise, there is so much going on here it's hard to describe. There are so many complimenting shapes and patterns; where do you start? Cushion case with cross hatch top and polished sides, to round crystal to shield shaped bezel ring, to a silver face with record grooves and a raised triangular pattern over the top. Gold colored asymmetrical triangular markers. This watch is the perfect representation of style circa 1963.

I haven't opened it up, but have no reason to suspect it is anything but period original. It is mounted on a matching condition period Speidel band that compliments it beautifully.

Some slight discoloration of right side of face when held "just right" in bright light. This seems to be quite common for this model for some reason. Only the slightest hint of plating wear on high points of lugs.

This was one of the watches on my "bucket list". Happy to have found one in such impeccable condition.

Additional Information

Based on the information offered on this site I believe it's a 1941 American Eagle with original strap. It's not in pristine condition but works, not sure if I should clean it up. No idea of history but it appears original. Unfortunately the strap is incredibly small so I can't wear it. How feasible is it to find a similar strap and add links? although not the most masculine look, it was what made me want it.
