Thanks, I have a 1943 I just updated. What was the source for the name Tildon?

Wayne,

GS Crystal.

"REGULATOR" is a center seconds model with a printed circular center track. "TILDON" adds the sub seconds dial.

EDIT: Mark, is the pic with two watches actually the same watch,but photoshopped? Only saying as they both have the same wear marks between the lugs, also is that radium specks on the numbers? They certainly look like the numbers used under some radium coated ones, I had the same ones on my Air Warden.

Definitely the same watch in the two watch pic. Same radium paint slip on the hour hand, same mark on the dial between 10 an 11, hands in identical positions in both pics, same dust specks on crystal to the right of the 9.

You sly old dog!
