Looks like a match to me with the exception of the 12K gold filled on your case back as compared to the ad stating 18 K solid and 18K 25 year. Whatcha think?

I think that 2 is an 8.  So the $35 version would be correct.

Yep, it's stamped 18k.

Can't make out the movement model.

The Dial varies slightly from the ad, the ad for the 5714 shows this Dial.

I caught this one just today and should possibly be in Hand by next week.

Looks like an early movement, calibre unknown.

If My theory is correct the Case seriel number Dates the Watch to 1921.

We haven't confirmed anything yet have we?  Why would you go and rename your watch 1921 already? 

OHHHH that's right... you have it in your head that Frank Lloyd Wright named numbered stuff this way so it's already gospel.

Ads are recorded as 1922/1923 not 1921, although as this movement will most likely not have a date stamp we'll have to wait for a 1921 ad to surface to confirm the theory.

The Watch looks like the one shown in the 1922 ad, if it were only clearer.

Interesting Movement admin, it looks like the bridge is hand scrawled. I've only seen one other on an early 10 linge.

It's an early one never the less. I'm pretty sure this ad is available on the bay, has been for quite some time.
