Yea thanks guys, the box is something I came across a while ago, I thought it belongs to the 1928 LE , but just put it in the photo to dress it up! It's in almost mint condition ! Hey if anyone's got a 1927-8 LE in nice clean condition they are willing to part with for a fair price let me know. 

even though it's a conqueror im quite happy with it! Super clean case and nice looking patina all around nice find. Gave it a cleaning she's running strong. Need a new crystal and strap to make it complete!

thanks again guys

A great Conqueror.  I love the patina, what very little there is.  The 10P also screams Conqueror.  Stephen will remember off the top of his head where the case serial number fits into things.  Didn't JP just source a glass crystal for same size bezel?  I too think the Conqueror is a harder to find than the Lone Eagle.  ..and what a box.  Maybe some more pictures of the box for another thread.  I think we have a thread on LE and early period boxes.  I'll look for it.

Conqueror, 1926 to be certain based on the case serial. It's a beauty, no doubt about that! I have mine on an alligator strap too, nice touch.

I updated from old 1925 date to 1926 based on case serial number.  I don't remember what entry we use for a case that has both Bulova and American Standard signatures, so I left that field blank.
