Additional Information

scarce silvered dial, needs a crystal and correct crown, does show some case wear to back. I discovered when looking for movement symbol==(the triangle being faintly stamped)== the letters CAL(Charles A. Lindbergh) at the apex of the screw hole, very tiny, stamped. Extremely hard to photograph, but a photo is shown here. Has anyone ever seen/noticed this on their early Lone Eagle movement? Could this be a distinguishing identification for the earliest of the watches distributed?

Agreed, there's not enough info to determine anything else and you are correct in saying that the case is the determining factor for dating. Moving to 1928 LE.

I would like to ask the owner of this watch to post a picture of the back case serial number as the '8', may have been mistaken for  a mistruck '6'. I'll PM him to see if he answers or still has the watch.

My gut feels its actually a '6' and not an '8'.

Here is a good example of what I'm talking about. This is the case back of a 1925 Conqueror, with serial number 6417980....the 6 could easily be mistaken for an '8'.

1925 Bulova Conqueror

If this was the case this would be a 1926 Bulova Conqueror.
