Other Details


NOTES:  Okay, Bobbee has talked me into a tentative ID on this one as the Farragut.  The jewel count is not a match, and all the examples of this model I've seen have 7 jewels, rather than the 15 specified in the ad, so I don't believe we're dealing with a simple movement swap.  The Farragut ad that Bob found is the only example seen so far of a model with the unusual design on the dial, and I've never seen another watch, other than examples identical to the subject watch, that have that design.
