Acadamy Award, post lawsuit.

Although the 10AX seems out of place?

I bought it without knowing the movement! I will update when I receive the watch.

Can't be a 10AX, the case is the wrong shape. Would be stepped. Has to be a 7A something or other, or possibly an 8A something or other!

 '49/50s are:

21J :7AA" for the "X" dials. And "7AK" for the Silver and Gold Curtains...

Wayne,

I have 2 just like it, a 49' 7AA movement in a 50' dated case and a 50' 7AA in a 50' case.

No doubt its a Academy Award, just which sub-model is still unclear.

'X'

the only difference I see Wayne is the printed Dial logo.
