Stunning Sky King, Jared, but needs Cathedral hands.
No, with the gilt numbers, gilt hands would be correct.
You right, me wrong!
I'm game with Sky King here. Looks Great!
OK for Sky King with gilt hands.
Sky King w/ Chevrons or what ever those patterns on the horizontal bezel engraving are called. We have several "different" sky king watches in DB w/ at least three different horizontal engraving patterns.... What do the ads show for the horizontal engraving patterns?
Or are they all variants/variations on the Sky King Case ads we do have?
1930 ad snippet below:
2 ads for the Sky King, both show the same Case - a Fish engraving pattern with Chevrons at each end.
The Black 'Modern style' Hands are correct with the raised Gilt numeral Dial.
It's nice to see a Sky King which matches the ads for Sky King. I believe (or hope) the others in DB w/ differing engraving patterns are either tentative, or the engraving differences are at least mentioned somewhere in the respective threads.
there's a rather large debate in the forum archives Will.
Just saying the movement wasn't put in the right way... you can clearly the screw that holds the movement to the holder is underneath the holder instead of on it.
