Additional Information: 

Beautiful tricolored black-white-gray explosion dial'ed pocket watch.  This one is really unusual from what I've seen as the case seems to be manufactured to have the bail on the bottom of the watch and the crown inset into the top.  So when you pull it out of your pocket it's immediately readable without having to turn it around.  I sorta dig it!

It needs a good cleaning, and the case back is a bit dinged up, but this one is a keeper for me for sure.

Double date stamped movement, Crescent and Shield, I'm going with the 1939, although the serial starts with an 8 indicating 1938.

A first with this design.

No match for a model, but we can place it into the general 'pocket watch' category for now so that it will be easy to find when we do eventually find an advert.

Very nice! Pocket watch for now, hopefully an ad will appear to give it a name.
