Additional Information

I found this one in a lot of watches which I don't usually even look at.  I thought it was worth picking up a few I didn't want to get it.  I believe it is an Academy Award "HH".  I really like the lugs on this one.  I have a band coming that is like the original and will post of pic of it when I have it installed.  For now I have put a cord band on it.

The case is 10K gold filled, date stamped L1.  The movement is also dated stamped L1.

Thanks Bob.  I would have been happy to get any example of this one but was happy when it was in pretty nice shape.  : )

Thank you jabs.  I thought I was really going to like this one based on the advert and happily it is just as pretty in real life.
