I like your nail polish Wayne... but don't you think it's more of a "summer" color?

NIce nails  err-ah  watch! I love the band.

I have one on a watch in the shop right now, will post when done.

Nice watch but I don't see it as a match for a Templar. The Templar is narrower and the difference is easily seen in the dial configuration.

I have two Templars & the cases are the same.

Left is 1929     Middle is 1929 Dial  Minutes chapter of 1927 right looks wider.  So you are saying it doesn't match the ad or that these are not Templar watches? I seem to be having this same problem  with my hard copy Mercury & the ad. It's a shame the bulova designers couldn't match the ads. LOL

Wayne do you have the original image for the ad? Is it in the database? It may have been resized/squished thus giving the ad a long narrow look.

Here's the same image stretched horizontally. Just a thought.

Ok scrap that idea....I should have done my homework first.

Ad clearly shows that it is skinner than your standard tonneau.

I don't think it matches the ad but admin brings up a good point about the images. Could just be the way the artist did that rendition. To me the dial looks more like that of the Banker though I know this isn't a Banker. I'm gonna take another good look at the ads and see if I see anything that I think may be closer to a match though I have no doubt you've already been very thourgh.
