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, and Maxim have all been identified through advertisements.  That leaves the Hartley and Rodrick still a mystery.  I have three "unknowns" dated 1950 that all take this same crystal, which, oddly, is more models than we have remaining unidentified that this crystal.

1950 Unknown
