Other Details


NOTES:  The case on this watch does not appear to have any plating, so I may have landed one of the rare solid sterling models.  I will be having it checked to be sure.  The color of the metal is certainly different--more yellow-than my other obviously chrome plated model.  The inside of the case does not read "Sterling Base"--it is blank.    The back of the case has all the appropriate markings, as shown in the image below.
