Additional Information

Here is an interesting one with a stunning "tropical" dial that is toned from original silver/white to a shiny gold in the center. Stainless back with a RGP case. Both movement and case dated 1950 (L0). Running and keeping time.

This is the third example of this watch added to the Db. The first 2 were submitted by member 1955mercury in 2015. At that time, this model was noted as looking like an engraved AA, with the suggestion it might be a "Thornton" based on crystal specs.

I've gone through the ads and don't find a match. Maybe some fresh eyes and research can finally put this one to bed.

Not finding this style with the engraved bezel, going with Unknown for now.

Nice looking dial.  Unknown for me as well.
