Additional Information

This one has me stumped.  It is a 14KT rose gold platewatch with a 21J 10AK movement with T date code for 1942.   The dial is copper colored with black printed arabic numbers and blued hands.  The second register is concave.  The watch is identical to the following unknown but with a slightly different font especially noted on the 7.  The case back is stainless steel.  I am thinking this might be a redial of a Westchester.

I entered the karat incorrectly.  It is 14kt rolled gold plate.  The crystal is 20.8MM and the case is about 24.5mm in diameter.

Right case, right movement, I'd say Winchester with a dial variation.

I'm also at Unknown with this one. I've had a good search through the site and a bunch of newpaper archives for that period, but have not found anything similar.

I've  come back to this one a few times with no luck. My gut feeling is it's one we have yet to ID.

 

Unknown for now.
