Additional Information

So this watch has been awaiting reveal not very patiently side stage for two years!

I picked her up awhile back but she didn't have a movement or dial.  As you can see this watch has such a unique dial and crystal opening it was really really hard to source.

Fortunately a fellow collector with one of these intact told me it was the exact same dial as her late 20's/early 30's Juno she had on a 6AF movement.

So for the last few years I've been on the hunt to find one of these dials, or at least a Juno I could rob.   Today... At long last I got the Juno for no small price in order for me to immediately change her dress!  Tah dah!

The dial fits perfectly!

I give you.... My unknown tri-colored enamel beauty!

Also... If you have a crystal this this lemme know... The hunt continues!

Crystal size specs?

 Approximately 12.6mm wide x 14.6mm tall

Sort of a diamond shape. But a fellow collector said you have to measure it diagonally?

So would that be?  21.58mm x15.82 mm

I feel like ai'm going to need to just get a flat Plexi crystal and file it down to fit.

I'm confused, which watch are we discussing here?

Not the Juno... I stole the movement out of there.  There I deleted it as to not cause confusion.

Very nice! Unfortunately, I'm also a member of the "Unknown" camp.
