Other Details


NOTES:  This is yet another watch that takes the same crystal as the following models listed in G-S Crystal Catalog No. 52:

  • Bruce
  • Cadet
  • Hancock
  • Hartley
  • Rodrick
  • Walton

Although not listed in the catalog, the Maxim also takes this same crystal.  The Bruce, Cadet, Hancock, Walton, Maxim, and Roderick have all been identified through advertisements.  That leaves the Hartley, which is the basis of this tentative ID.
