Additional Information

This is what I believe to be a 1938 Montgomery.   It is 10KT yellow gold filled case with the recessed crown.  It has a 7AP 17J movement with crescent moon date code.  The dial is white with applied yellow gold hour markers.  Got it cheap off of ebay as a non-runner and missing the second hand.  It needed just a mainspring and is running great.  I need to get a stock of gold second hands.  All I have are black.

The design of this case has really grown on my of lately. Very unique.

You could also look to get the correct hands when searching for the second hand. Chances are you'd get the set from a donor movement.

I was looking for parts for another watch and when I looked down there was a gold second hand on my desk.  Perfect fit.  Thank you.
