Additional Information

I was quite pleased when I opened this package. Much better than expected, it cleaned up rather well and is keeping time. 1952 Air King on a fresh black suede band, as originally sold. Case and movement dated "L2". Some plating wear through on the back side next to the crown, which seems to be a pretty common affliction for the Air King. Crystal needs a good polish -  that's a fussy project for another day. Yellow gold plate with silver bezel ring.

Ernie's family must have thought pretty highly of him.

I've been watching (pun intended) for one of these for a long time and finally found one I could afford in nice presentable condition. Check another iconic Bully off my bucket list.

Now get a Birkshire and you'll have a great set!

Both on my bucket list.
