Calling Dr. Smellody...

Post by bobbee » November 17th 2022, 5:30pm

Found in a guy's parts bin, no less.


Wondering if you could help with model and date, Christopher.
It looks like a very, very early cal. 1000 series, can't find an auto with just '1000' on the plate, usually 1030.
I'm trying to get the case serial, will update if I can.

The dauphine hands, hour markers, and tighter than current coin edge bezel are all mid to late 50's and period correct to watch.

There a couple of model number references it could be. Interestingly the transition models from bubbleback to semi bubbleback to modern oyster didn't always account for different bezels.

I think that 400k # will correlate with case #. Can't wait to hear.

I'll look through more books when I can.

This is just so wrong:
