Agreed.

Case serial no. inside of case back, and is 7 digits, not six.

Many early thirties models seem to have two sets of case numbers, on inside and one outside the case back. This changed around 1935 to the seven digit number outside only.

Is the case engraved on the subject watch? Best and closest match we have so far would be the Kirkwood, but I'm tentative with that ID.

Is the Kirkwood ad showing an engraved bezel?  I'd be at tentative too.

Subject watch case looks engraved.  The ad we have above for the Kirkwood isn't engraved and has a different dial.  Those two things lead me unknown, though I'll look through our newer ads to see if we have one showing engraved.

I have to agree with Plains on those 2 observations. Unknown for now.

Nearest thing is Kirkwood I think.

We have engraved "Senators" with three ticks in the db, same kind of thing, no?
