Additional Information

Welp... don't ask me to show you a picture of the movement because the only way to get it out is to take off the front crystal and remove the stem.   A.  I'm nortorious for cracking/breaking crystals when I take them off the front.   B.  I've never been able to detatch on of those two part stems from the front.  Ever... ... ever.    Haha... so... the 23 Jewel Model number is copied from other examples of this watch  Everything else is original (dial, hands, case) that I'm sure the movement is fine.   According to the ad we have it look as though we've got the President "OW".  Of those 1960 President this is my second favorite only behind the triangle watch.   This on has the unusual asymmentrical back case.   If you look at the model closely I looks like this dial is more gold colored than it is white like some of the others.  I don't think that's patina.  Looks like it's supposed to be.   I actually think this one might be in better shape than the last I posted last week.

Oftentimes the split stem will have had water damage, so they can be rusted solid together, making it almost impossible to remove.

President OW.

I know how you feel about the crystal and two-pc stem removals. I just recently and successfully removed my first crystal using a crystal lift, but I would recommend practicing on a not-so-nice watch. It is easy to slip and damage the dial. I don't usually have any trouble popping off the two-pc stems and re-connecting them. Just don't try popping off a one-pc stem - doesn't end well!

Hmm, deja vu, all over again, this isn't the one you posted last week? 

That was a President OW, so is this. The band here is way better.
