Serial Number 1924279 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: 1924279 is open face. I believe that it is 6th
model. I do agree with "Grade 89."

Serial Number 1924010 was reported as inaccurate.

Note: It is an open face not a hunter. Otherwise it is
accurate (has a screw down bezel with a swing
out). The movement looks like the sample image
(the lower one). Thanks for maintaining this
site! On the Otto Frei website, this would
correspond to a Model 6.
