Correct 950B dial??? "Click" to Login or Register 
I would like some advice about this Ham 950B.The serial number is S10736, which I believe dates to 1951. The case serial number is K346232, which I also believe dates to 1951. I bought this off of EBAY, non-working. The dial I believe is a "151" numerical?? Is this dial correct for a 950B? I've looked at the dial research information and the dial is not listed as one of the examples. I was thinking about replacing it with a 23 JEWEL Melamine dial, if I can find one. I think it's original because the case halves were practically glued on with years of gunk. It took some torque to remove them from the watch. Any thoughts?

I would think this is a 992B dial and not for a 950B.

John: I believe that is the original dial. My friend has the same dial on a 950B in the 10000 serial number range that he bought in 1960 for $50. Gary

Congrats on the buy - John... The dial cleaned up very well from the listing on ebay (was watching the listing, too). That is a hard dial to find that is not riddled with hairlines. As Gary stated - I would just leave her as is. Looks good and something a little different. The crown looks like new!

Thanks Jon, I had to replace the staff and clean it up a bit. Runs very well. I didn't think I would be able to afford a 950B and was pleasantly surprised when I won it. My first 950B.
