Other Details

 

NOTES:  This watch has been tentatively identified as the Lido based on G-S Crystal Catalog No. 43, which lists this crystal as belonging only to that model.  

 

This is the third example of the Lido in my collection.  The other two are dated 1934 and have a fully numbered dial and an embellished bezel. This example with an indexed dial and a smooth bezel is typical of this period in the 1930s, when the same model was offered with variations, including 2) numbered vs. indexed dial, 2) white vs. black vs. yellow dial color, 3) engraved vs. unengraved case, 4) subseconds dial vs. no subseconds dial.
