At 35mm. Patterned dial, the size, the movement, the gimmick of no crown got me.
Hardwood of today has nothing to do with Harwood of yesteryear, but that doesn’t stop them from claiming they are.

At $444.11, I took a chance. This is the cheapest anyone has seen them go for, the used ones go for around a thousand. I’m reading where it has something to do with Fortis and Ball. Not a bad price for a 2892 movement. I can always trade it if I don’t like it.

Now I wait because I chose free ground shipping.

I like it. Bet you won’t ever see another one in real life except for yours!

It sets through the bezel. The design at the 6 lets you know if it is in safe or adjustment mode, same concept as the original form 1924.
