Hi Scott,

Nice watch! I just got a similar one, just not as nice condition and marked A9. 21 jewels, 10BM movement. Missing stem.

Hi Terry,

This one looks to be a 1948+ "ARNOLD?" However at 21 Jewels (vs. 17Js?) I could be mistaken?? Oddly, there is no denotation (movements table, here) for the "10BM/s?" I think then it might be "10BM in: 15, 17 & 21 Jewels?" Or perhaps a 21J 10BM, in a Arnold case??

Terry both your watches look different from the watch in question. Did you upload the wrong photos?

I'd say both the original and the redial above have the X pattern dial.

Very nice looking watch.'s picture

AGREED.. I missed the (faint) "X" in the second example image... And I since had one restored/resold, that also sported the "X..."

Hi All,

Sorry, I've been sick. I have trouble loading pics many times. I load one pic and a different one comes up.
