This is a nice watch Denis, I think it is a match to the Hawley you've linked. That watch was ID'd from a crystal packet, which I'm not a fan of. I would give this one a tentative ( two check) rating as Hawley.

The example in the database was the only thing I could find that matches this one So far I haven't found an ad to match it.

I will vote for unknown on this one. The crystal packs do not always show all of the names that a crystal may fit, and sometimes show different names on different packs for the same G-S model #.

Tentative from me.

Sometimes I vote tentative based on crystal specs (as in the linked Hawley example) and other times I may not.  For me, it depends on how unique the crystal specs are.  If its a really odd shape, or at least one that's fairly uncommon, I vote tentative.  


I'm tentative on this Hawley ID, as in linked example, although as Ken does point out,  GS may list the most popular model name on cyrstal packs, when they also fit others...

Agree with Wawley, I think that is equally with another one in db
