HI-YO Silver!!! This is a New Haven Lone Ranger from around 1937. Been looking for one of these for a while. I got this at the NAWCC show on Sunday. The crystal is yellowed so if anyone has one for this (it is 28mm x22mm)....
Not many parts to these. I actually needed to swap this movement out with another one. After I cleaned the movement and put it together, it ran but the hands would not move. The center wheel had a cracked gear. Since that part is all pressure-fitted together, I needed to swap out the entire movement (parts watches saved the day again)!
Wore it to work today, got some nice comments..
