Hi all ive just purchased this watch off ebay. I believe it might be a broadcaster. I would apreciate any members comments regarding  its possible identity. There is a 1938 advert on the system but I cant seem to attach it to this file

It is missing the crystal so if anyone has one to fit i would be very grateful if they could contact me.

regards

George

Hi jabs

Have you had a look at the tale ive put on regarding watch repairs  take a look  its not a nice one.

PS  ive also put a bid in for the 1933 watch which ends in a few days, im well in the lead but im not going to increase my bid if it goes silly. Also l am thinking of putting some of my collection up for sale soon as im a bit peaved at the way a watchmaker(so called) ruiined 3 good watches,  see watch repairers post.

Regards

George
