Other Details


NOTES:  This is the earliest example of a center sweep seconds hand that I've ever seen.  I believe the earliest examples of this feature shown in the advertisements occur in 1938 (Buckingham and ladies' Supervisor).  It has been speculated that this was an early physician's or nurse's watch.  I believe it is too large to be a ladies' model, so early physician is my bet.


The crystal on this watch appears to be identical to that used on the Commodore (see 1935 and 1936 listings) and the 1935 Dictator.

1932 Unknown
