Nice watch and pics wordsmith.
Did you get the '43 date from the date code on the movement? What is the date code? Using the case serial #'s first digit (5) I would date this to '45 instead.
Can you correct the Movement Model to 8AH? Thanks.
Here is the link to the Date Code Chart:
1946 ad showing this as a Spencer in red gold plate, watch BB:
Agreed, Id is a Spencer.
Thank you verry much for your help. The date I provided was merely an estimate. I was unable to locate the date code on this watch. Thanks again for your help.
Spencer.... though I think we may have an ad for a Senator B in this design someplace.
I'm good w/ 1945 Spencer for now. I also think there's a similar ad for Senator B somewhere...but can't find it now. I'll look a little closer on Monday.
