Other Details


NOTES:  This watch appears to take the same crystal as the 1932 "unknown" (possible physician or nurse's watch), and the 1935/36 Commodores.  The case serial number does not take the standard seven-digit form, so I have not used it to date the watch.  The movement date corresponds nicely with the 1935 advertisement shown below.
