Serial Number 172112 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: This watch can be would by either stem winding OR
key winding...a conversion or transition of some
kind? I think I read somewhere that the Model 2
was transitional and both key wind and stem wind?
Curator Response: Thanks for the report. The database has been updated accordingly.
