Nice one Greg, was getting tired of seeing the 'CONRAD' with a dot-dash Dial.

I am just wondering if it is still called a Conrad or something else??

We have seen them with dots & dashes, Rubies & dashes, and now this...A B C D variants or different name like the Chief, Clinton, Knickerbocker bunch?  About the same era, so who knows?

Yeah....  I'm wondering..  can a Westchester dial fit in there as well?  I don't have a Conrad on hand to see.. but curious.

I love that look on there though man.

Isn't the Westchester the same size as a Surgeon?? This dude is quite dainty and it only has a 8 series movement.

The long lugs make it look a lot bigger that it is...Its really not much bigger than a Air Nurse when you take the lugs away.

Hrmm... wonder if this one and my '41 unknown are the same size?  He's a little small as well.

Based on the case I suggest we ID this a tenative Conrad noting different dial.  Panel?
