"CONRAD".  1936 ad.  Jewel count wrong, ad says 21.

The GS MT 360-23 Crystal is listed as fitting both the 'CONRAD' and the 'CONQUEROR'.

'CONRAD' is ID'd in ad the above as having a 21 Jewel movement, the deduction would be the subject with 17 Jewels is the 'CONQUEROR'.

I think he got it right off the crystal package LOL  Not like he'd proposed a possible "Vermisus Snid" model name....

No Will, the crystal packet wasn't posted until after I made my post.
Someone was being a smartass.

FWIW, the '43 GS catalog also list's the "Dewey" as taking the MT360-23. I looked through the '34-'36 ads and found no Dewey. Also, there's no Dewey id'd in the DB.

Can't be the Conrad if it's got 17 jewels.  Unless it's non-conforming?  Or unless we are going with a movement swap and not calling it non-conforming.  I don't think there are any ads for the Conqueror w/ this case. I don't think it's non-conforming. There is some crystal data.  So I'm going with:
Unknown for now.  An easy one for me.
