Plans to get the dial redone? I would be interested to see how it turns out.

Certainly warrants it admin, on down the road Yes.

Waaay tooooo many projects!

Very interesting.. Way more engraving on the horizontal of the bezel that in the ad.

I'll bet this really catch the light.

I noticed that...not an 'AMBASSADOR' or a detail left off by the Artist ??

The engraving pattern matches at all other points and the Jewel count is the same.


* display ad updated showing matching Case horizontal details, ad dated 1930.

I'm not seeing a difference in the engraving between the watch and the ad.  Both have two rows of engraving with a plain stripe in the center.  Looks like a solid match to me. 

Now, for that matching bracelet. . . .

Dial first, bracelet may become an issue..

: )

The prior ad used only showed one row of engraving on the Bezel horizontals, dated 1928 or 1929 in the database.

No fair swapping out photos instead of adding new ones.  Makes it difficult to follow the discussion.

It may seem strange, but I actually read these things and try to figure out why people said what they said.

Need cathederal hands?? I got'em for the 10AN Mark.

The only deviation from the ad that I see is the gilt hour markers vs radium.
