    I'm curious indeed as I thought Auricoste is the only one who did such a mark (?)

    Below is a Chronofixe type 20 notice

    ... and my Dodane type 21, civilian model, one of 500ish (around 5000 Dodane military issued, type 20 and 21 included), valjoux 222 flyback, Cetehor 3 stars marks on caseback, "graduation pilote" bezel ... and bridge unmarked

    I really like this case shape, its a perfect balance between round and square. Being an Omega only adds to its charm. Wear it in good health. :thumbsup:

    Pic taken when we were having better weather in Chicago...

    Just got this back from my watchmaker. I missed it!

    By the way, John Wanamaker was a prominent Philadelphia-based department store (till it was taken over by Macy's earlier in the century and virtually destroyed like most of their acquisitions). Here is a photo of the famous Wanamaker eagle in the Center City flagship store (with a friend of mine).

    Speedmaster Saturday? Everyday is a great day to wear a speedy.

    The two watches in background are the blue faced speedys from the most recent catalog. While they are nice, just not as nice as the Gemini IV. IMG_20151121_065114.jpg

    My sister's awesome dog, 'Leibe'. She loves sapphire crystal reflections, so she's a bit disappointed now that I'm more into vintage domed!

    Thats a wonderful watch as well.. Fantastic condition! However, I haven't had the time to look this up but it might be that I'm a little confused and that you're right :)
