1957 Pelham - tentative

Typically I'm tentative at best on watches ID'd with only a crystal packet. In this case I'm SKEPTICALLY tentative.

We've kicked this around now for years and when I look at that crystal, and compare it with the case, it looks to be a perfect match.

As long as the packet ID is in any way accurate, but that's two unknowns right there.

Tentative 1957 Pelham.
