Looks right to me, the only diff. would be the minute hand. Apparently Ppainted in" by artist rendition ;-)

Movement details if you can please Fifth. I love capturing the movement data of these 20s beauties

Case, Movement details and fresh Photographs upon arrival.


We shall see, I may argue that point.  haha...(most likely not, flex band looks 1950's)

(the current photograph is not the greatest but as Shawn noted it looks like a nice one, I'd have to agree, it does).

I notice the springbar popping thru the lugs, would a double flange springbar prevent that?

the 'real' old timers were single flange, these were double flanged but without a shoulder so both the flanges slipped right through the lug hole, but Yes if the bars are shouldered they will work.

The important thing is the flange diameter - too small and it allows the springbar to move around causing irrepairable damage to the mounting point.

Flex band has been removed - Speidel 1950's, these metal flex bands can also do horrendous damage to lugs.

Crystal will be replaced with N.O.S. Glass, the one showing is incorrect for this Watch......other than that She looks pretty good for 85.

I have a prob with them on my Pepsi bezel so I ordered some doubles from International Watchman...who by the way has some fantastic leather and exotic bands way cheap..I bought about a dozen from him and ALL exceded by far anything I have ever seen fro 2 -3 times the cost, and AMERICAN made.


Most are $6-$20 Ron,the owner, seems to always answer the phone when I call, great guy !!!

Just confirming the movement SN.  From the one picture of movement in dust cover...could there be another number not in sight?  This would change the SN from a five digit number to a six digit number.  It sure doesn't look like there is....
