Additional Information

It's been a great week for buying.  Found another one I've been coveting for quite awhile.  I snagged this bad boy for under $30 this morning.

I'm going with the American Eagle, obviously a variant, but I don't think we've ever figured out which this one is.  So... I'm thinking American Eagle generic?  I know Greg has a very nice example of this model in the database already.  HERE.   I'm happy to have the second one!

I'm just guessing the movement as the seller doesn't have a picture.  These are again the sellers pictures and I will take new ones when I get the watch in.

Oh!! So you were the one.  I tried to lowball the bid and was still asleep when it ended.

Good score especially for the price and with the original band.

Muahahahaha... I haven't been paying attention much lately gents.   I actually had a snipe on this one for a bit... I think I had it up to say 90ish.

One of the cool things I noticed about the bracelet is that the first link can have the rest of the bracelet removed ( using the spring pin) and a leather band then can be attached to that first link.
