How come you posted a 1926 Senator ad vs a 1925 ad?

Mark are you sure its 1925? If so the hands are probably not original either as this style appeared in the later half of 1927....wow do I sound like a watch nerd!!! :-)

Looks like it's a1928 cresent moon movement. Serial number also dates it to around 1928.

admin,

I've looked at it so long now I'm seeing all kinds of things - Crescent moon on the bridge?

...so based on above, I'm changing my ticks for 1928 Senator from three confirmed to two for tentative.
