Additional Information

Because I love this watch model I took advantage of finding a second one and picked it up.  I can now keep one in the case and have one to wear and enjoy.  This was a blurry listing I took a chance on hoping it was what I thought it was.  The dial is slightly different than my first example.  Interesting that the two ads seem to match the two watches.  

I believe this is an Academy Award "J".  It has a 10K gold filled case that is dated stamped L0.  It has a working 6BA 21 jewel movement that is dated stamped 49.  I was happy to find a correct band to put on it.  I don't think these would be quite the same without this band.  Thanks.

Nice line up there Miss Kathy. I agree that the original bracelet really completes the package.

Thank you Geoff : ) I have had to buy a couple of inexpensive watches I didn't want to get the bands but I was just happy to find them.
