The 'Flying Fortress' looks to basically be the 'Stop watch' model with radium dial and hands. That will certainly help us better ID these models.

Based on further review the Flying Fortress has a waterproof case and the lugs are not beveled.  I believe this to be a new model that has not shown up in the database yet.

Throwing this ad out there.  Shows an engraved Navigator as a Cromwell.   Seen an ad with an expansion bracelet called a Navigator. There is a crystal called the Cromwell CMX324-2.   Thoughts?
