Other Details


NOTES:  There are four watches with this same basic design.  The ads show their characteristics as follows:

  • 1936 Apollo - subseconds dial, unengraved case
  • 1937 Kenmore - subseconds dial, engraved case
  • 1938 Buckingham - center sweep seconds, unengraved case
  • 1942 Practioner - center sweep seconds, unengraved case (likely a later rename of the Buckingham)
