Here it is gents...

I always find those watchmakers marks inside the case so cool.  Sort of like all those guys are here telling you a little story about how each of them did their part to take care of this watch over the last century.

Very nice Plains. Good example of a watch with some character. I like the jewelers marks too :)

The original owner of this really cared for his wtach. I think if he were around today he certainly be a member. That has to be the most jewellers marks I've ever seen!

The movement looks great!

This should be worth a pretty penny! Very nice.

Top job Plains.

Another NICE ONE, Jerin!

HEY... what are the glass proportions, on this model? I have about 4+ Bankers denoted, but oddly... I don't seem to have the specs just yet on the original "Bankster?!" (But I  bet I have the glass???)

I think the linen dial is fascinating and really makes the watch for me. Nice find Jerin.

The most I've ever seen is around 13-14. That is one well cared for piece.
