    hi friends, here’s the last conni I found around by the net. Pics are very poor, I know. But there are a good start to get an idea about this watch... so here’s the bad boy!

    I’ll offer what I can...case bevels look sharp and not heavily polished. Dial pretty distressed. Minute and second hand reach the minute register and look original to me.

    Oh! That’s a good news! Thanks to you noelekal
    I feel a little “strange” the medallion...

    My guess for a case reference would be a 2852 but you really need to get the back off to be sure. The case is really nice and the dial looks original to me. Not too keen on the patina but each to their own. Check the crown has 10 sides, on some of the photos it looks like it might only have 8. Hands are correct style and length. Medallion looks ok.

    Well said by Noddyman.
    To me, the most attractive part of the watch is the dial is original and untouch, though aged.
    I have an example of similarly aged dial of a Connie, which looks great when wearing on hand. Please see pic below. Good luck!

    Thank you

    Bit of a rare bird.
    Arrow head dial with dogleg case.
    There can’t be many of them about.

    I think a 14381 or 14393 with arrow head was posted recently -and that was considered uncommon.

    Do you have the serial number ?
    It would be interesting to try to pin down a date for these ‘transitional’ pieces.

    Ah!

    in which case the dial and the case didn't start life together
    which clears up the anomaly - thank you for that

    but an interesting combo all the same

    Mistake by newbie, the above movement pic is wrong. It does not belong to the watch below.
