Thanks John, just a question or two, are there any adjusted markings on these two, also does the first one 351433 have a "L&P screw".

Hi Bila: First watch has "Adjusted" on barrel bridge and also has "L&P screw".

Second does NOT have either marking. John

Just bringing this up the list, still looking for numbers, we have some 6,500 now in the database but due to Rockford's convoluted production more are needed to flesh-out most of the deviations they made.

So if you have some stashed away anywhere please forward the serials, description and essentially photos if possible, as we are collecting all sorts of minute data.

No Gary, not as yet. Was to have some preliminary data up by the New Year but due to ill health, a house move and a few other deaths in the Family in the first quarter of this year most things have gone by the wayside.

Also we have been still chasing numbers, we have 1.32% of the serial numbers in the first 500,000 numbers produced and are trying to get 10,000 or 2%.

This has been a very hard and long struggle to get there. Due to the hundreds of change made by the Company with Models and jewel counts at least 2% will be needed to nut out the discrepancies and miss-information about this Company's Watch Production (things will be re-assessed after we make this target as that might not still be enough).

Rockford production is not like most of the other Companies and due to these changes extrapolation can not be used in areas of the production to make a calculated guess on certain runs of models. Hence the ongoing search for numbersSmile

As well as this we are still trying to nut-out how we want this published and presented to the Collecting World.
