NOTE

**I am very interested in what the experts/panel think. I narrowed the watch to the "his excellency" looking at pics under 1949 on this site, but none are as fancy as this watch. None have the 3 diamonds OR the fancy case design, including design on the lugs.

WOW, that was FAST. thanks for the information. The Tuxedo costs more than "his excellency", so better yet. Really love this watch. Can't wait to learn more. Thanks so much! Scott
