Old habits die hard, Im sure many people saw a nice pocket watch as a status symbol well past the '50's

Reverend Bob, does your watch have a SS back or is it plated? Is there a date code on the movement? Thanks

Hey Darren, 

Sorry I missed the question, there is no date code on the movt, and the caseback is GF like the rest of the case, not SS.

Bob, I just looked at Jim Townsend's '49 Unknown pocketwatch and noticed that his 17AH is dated just to the right of the "15" of the 15 Jewels mark. After magnifying your pic there appears to be a triangle, '45, which is consistant with the '46 case serial #.
