I thought maybe the Arnold but I believe the 1950 Arnold was a 15 Jewel movement?  Notice the gold scrolling on the sides of the case only.

Bought off ebay a couple weeks ago $35 shipped.  What do we think boys?

I think it does look quite a bit like the 1950 17 Jewel "Handcock" pictured here?

HMMM... Actually the 7 jewel "Walton" I posted, looks similar... (but rather to the Hancock) I  think???

This (1950- 53+?) model, is NOT a Minuteman... (It's rather a Keith, Shoreham, Standish or maybe even a Stanton????) LOL...

And I also have a photo of the plain (vs. engraved) bezel varietal... that is also undoubtedly one of the four above, as well...

And it's a "Hancock," vs. Handcock," BTW! (Wink...)

Yeah I don't know about that one Mark.  If you look at that Minute Man it doesn't seem to have the gold scrolling on the sides of the bezel?

just looked mine over plains, it has scrolling but between the lugs, not down the sides. Opposite of the way Yours is done. 99% it's a 50 minute man. Nice watch, looks original and complete.

HMMM... Are the crystal specs. (CMN: Curved, Military, Cut Corner, Tonneau shape) 21.45 x 20.4mm???

And do you have the crystal, or not??? (I have MANY of them...)

Let me know when you find a name. I have a 1950 model with no engraving. The lug end is set at a 45 degree angle where the lug comes onto the bezel. That angle will be key to finding the correct name for this watch. An example of this watch cannot be found in the site ad archieves. I have checked several times. The second pic is all engraved.

AWE HA! 3/3 from 1950!!!

 

Ok... There's the Shoreham, Stanton and Standish. (All 1950+ varietals, I believe... that take the same crystals!) NOW, where the heck are the ads/Jewelers catalogs to discern which are what!? (DARN !!!)

SHOREHAM (1950)   STANDISH (1950)   STANTON (1950)

* Info. source: 1950 Perfit Catalog... (And none listed before '50 in the other trio of 1948/9 catalogs...)

HMMM... Alphabetical, from plain to most engraved bezel???  LOL...
