Re: A little Detective work reveils...

: Wow! I can't tell you how cool this is to find
: this stuff out!

: According to that picture it is definitely a
: Autavia 45 model 3646H, and I am
: hypothesizing that it is the middle
: selection in the chart above - I measured
: the "pushers" with a caliper at
: 4.3mm (narrowing it down to the bottom two
: choices) and there are "dots marking
: the hours" and the hands are not
: "square" as described in the
: lowest of the three. If I read the chart
: correctly that means it was in the 1966
: catalog, which is very cool since that is
: the year I was born.

: Chuck, I can't thank you enough for all this
: cool information. Next time I'm in Chicago I
: owe you dinner at Pizza Uno!

: Thanks again,

: Mark

P.S. - I have since heard back from LVMH in New York (I sent them the same pictures & info). Here is their quote:

"I did some further research with watchmakers and estimators and the only information I found out it was made in 1927. They had no information on any values of the watch. Thank You, Customer Hotline"

You guys at "OnTheDash" really seem to know your watches - I'd hate to send it to someone who supposedly represents the company but doesn't even guess the right decade of manufacture. If any of you know a reputable watchmaker who might be able to do a cosmetic restoration please let me know.
