Two piece stem

I read in a google search a discussion in this forum regarding how to separate a two piece stem without yanking it out but rather turning the stem backwards with the movement hanging. Worked like a charm. 
 

Wondering IF there is an equally simple way to rejoin the parts when the time comes. Not sure how to query the archive.

Thanks.

1949 Aeronaut with BLACK dial?

I recently saw a 1949 Aeronaut 17J, 8AE with a black dial on ebay. It was listed as Vintage Bulova A9 Men's Wristwatch (view in completed auctions).

I saw three 1949 Aeronauts here on the site, but all three, including any adverts. showed a WHITE dial.  I believe the one on the ebay auction was a newer, black re-dial. 

My question is....did Bulova ever make a BLACK dialed '49 Aeronaut?

Thanks,

Dennis

 

A movie cameo!

My wife and I went to see "Ford v Ferrari" yesterday—a very good movie about Ford, race car designer Carroll Shelby (Matt Damon) and driver Ken Miles (Christian Bale) trying to win at Le Mans in the mid-'60s. The guy at Ford who gets things going, at least in the movie, is Lee Iacocca, and though I got just a glimpse of it, I saw right away what watch he was wearing: an Accutron 214. And it makes perfect sense that the go-getter, forward-thinking guy at Ford would be wearing that watch at that time.
