Hi all 

Just recieved this one this morning, I believe its 1949 Director.

The case and bracelet are in very good condition, the only marks are a few scratches on the case back. the dial is in good shape too. The movement runs but certainly do with a service.

The movement is marked A9 and is 10BC 15 jewelled. The case is marked A9 and has the serial number 2342268. The bezel is 10 K gold filled with a stainless steel back . the bracelet is marked 12k gold filled top Stanless Steel back and stamped with the name Bretton.

The crystal has some scratches and needs replacing

Thanks for that jabs ,l was wondering about he bacelet, because very few watches seem to havethe original ones by the time we get hold of them. Both the watch case and bracelet are in exceptional condition.

Nice 1949 Director. I have to disagree with the band being original; it should be similar to this band (only in yellow gold).
