Ok why the 2 stars its been proved it is what it is

I don't know Jim,

I think it should be a 3 star watch, is the dial White or a Butler (silverish) finish like the new ad describes it?

I would say and my wife agrees its  silverish rather than white. Oh well we know what it is and i no doubt know who the culprit is that rated it only 2 stars.

The Watch received a 2 Star rating because it has a White Dial - something the Watch Owner themselves have proclaimed in the past.

There is no ad as of yet for a White Dialed 'ACADEMY AWARD'.

I think it is, but have no concrete proof therefore the ID is 'tentative'.


The Culprit.

Dial is NOT WHITE!!!!! WE ARE NOT BLIND  it is a silverish color in person the flash from the camera made it look white

When You initially had this Watch listed why did You say the Dial was White? At that time I told You I believed it to be a White Dialed 'ACADEMY AWARD' model but had no concrete evidence to prove the theory, You listed the Watch as such.

This is the same Watch correct?

This was the watch i first listed, The one above is the other one i have, If you look at the dials they are differnt but still the same if that computes. This dial is white as you can see and the other is far from this color.

Guess this is settled :)

I believe that we can now identify this model as the "S".  Crystal specs already supported that conclusion (G-S CMY304-10).  Now we have a couple of ads as well.

Both ads are dated 1951.  They are not yet in the database, but they have been provided to Stephen and should be in the DB soon.
