Confirmed AA "T" from me per 1951 ad in DB page 5. Interesting that the ad even calls out the mfg. and name of the band. Also came in white gold.

Yep, I'll post the white later. Actually, I have most of the Men's AA models and intend to get them back into the database and Yes, your going to be drewlling again, and again, and again. I've been called an " overachiever"

Wait! It could be an obscure Dutch market variant.....Does that crown say Buvola? Also the desk it is sitting on looks suspicious. Sorry Shawn, I'm going to have to say Unknown Non Conforming Modified Franken. 

JK, AA 'T' all the waaay.

Jealousy for me. I 'm yet to be lucky enough to own any of the AA series. They are all great looking watches.
