Possibly a Conqueror if not a Lone Eagle. The 27 date with the 9AT movement could make it aeither or. Very nice watch. It has the LE hands as the Conq. had Spade hand for the minute and Cath for the hour.

Well done Tony, it's a Lone Eagle. I agree that it's a 1928 model. Looks to be in pretty nice condition, the brown spot above the 11 seems to be on the crystal? The enamel look like it's all there too. Good find.

Yes it's the crystal that has dried up glue on it, this one is mint. Very nice condition. Even the lug holes are showing zero wear! Thanks guys I been on the hunt for a while now. im happy.
