    Handsome watch....interesting case design.....the dial color is great and contrasts beautifully with the markers. I have one of these I am working on, but my dial is an off-white....now you have me looking for another one with your color dial.

    You probably know this, but for other OF members who might be interested, this model was known/advertised as both the "Princeton" and "His Excellency". The case design was produced from 1946-1950, and was available with several different dial design. I believe all versions used a 21 jewel movement. Here are a couple period adds.

    Okay, so now I’ve caught up on several days of WRUW Today? Whew!

    But, I am reminded of a Hannibal Lecture line that I’ll paraphrase here:

    “How do we begin to covet? We begin with what we see every day.”

    You guys are killing me! The pages of watches that we are routinely posting represents an insane collection of gobsmacking pieces. ::love::

    It’d be interesting to have a website tool that, based on available information, estimated the total value of the watches on each page (at the bottom). I’m betting that the average varies between $75,000 to a quarter of millions dollars per page. :eek:

    Damn!

    Something new (to me), out of the ordinary to be sure.

    Thank you for posting these ads.

    It is a stunner.

    I knew it as Princeton. I have another, a NCAA presentation watch dated 1947, white dial. I’ve posted it before in this thread.

    I’ll post better pix on my return using my Sony camera, it presents very well and I love the thick, straight-sided crystal, yet it is low profile on the wrist.
