This appears to be our first look at an actual 1930 Treasurer.  Very nice!!!!

Looks like it probably had a redial at some point, but the case is a Treasurer. (Or is that one of those fancy striped linen dials that we sometimes see?)

That indeed is one clean dial !!! Might well be original as some of my early ladies models have that "linen look" dial, and as bad as some of mine are, I'm guessing they are original.

An AGN (Applied Gold Numeral) TREASURER, eh? 

 

Nice watch! And the redial looks to be auethentic enough... (Pin striping and all !)

Looks like Nova & I both have the luminous varietal of the 1927/8 "Treasurer" model then? The case detailing (especially the Greek key detailing, combined with the other engraving...) looks to be VERY similar? However it's hard to say, with that little "top view" image? So the movement is likely then 1929, vs. 1927? Or rather a 1930??

Definitely a KEEPER... as we have only seen 3+ "Treasurers" to date, I think??? (i.e. Quite RARE!)

 

Best :-)  Scott

Scott, I don't think ours are Treasurers--at least not the Treasurer in that ad.  They do have the Greek key engraving, but it is in a different place from this Treasurer.  The cases are also shaped differently overall.

The watch was my grand fathers. My dad gave it to me a few years ago. The watch was in Quebec Canada...at least that's where my family is from. I assume my grand father bought it there since he had never traveled. Thanks for all the information. Knowing about the watch means a lot to me. It's eventually going to my kids.

A very nice watch, Guy. The movt is an FHF 1246. I strongly recommend getting the watch properly serviced if you want to run it, which should be easy if you are still in Quebec? Lots of watchmakers in Montreal and surrounding areas.

two ticks tentative Treasurer.  Maybe a dial variant, but Treasurer.  I like these cases.  Wonder what's on the inside of the case back?
