Other Details


NOTES:  I have two other watches that appear to be examples of this same model, though they have 17-jewel movements rather than the 15-jewel movement found in this example and specified in the advertisements.  Also, one of the later models has an engraved bezel.  (See 1951 Andrew and 1952 Andrew.)   Case shape and size, and well as crystal shape and size, are identical for the three watches.  G-S Crystal Catalog No. 52 specifies the crystal named above as belonging to the Andrew and no other.
