Absolutely awesome!  I was wondering when someone would turn up with that one.

Super find Mark!

Looks like the o-rings did their job...that movement looks nice and clean.

I like how the used screws to lock down the cover...Definitely worth a full restoration on this rare beauty.

No cause for alarm Boys and Girls, hesitated and let this one slide by (kicks self)

It rolled through Our 2nd favorite website over the past Summer - saved the images. No one has entered it into the database (yet) so there it is.

* see disclaimer above.

I'm not sold on the Dial - Hand / Movement combination being correct, although the Jewel count is the same and the Date works the Dial and Hands seem to differ slightly from 'as advertised.'

You just made me cry.  I can't believe you let that one go.  It's a black armband day.

The Johnny Weismuller advertisement had been the subject of 'spirited' debate in the past.
