While the watch is from about 1905 the case is probably from around 1920.

Even so,to pick up a watch this scarce ( N=800)for $431 is remarkable compared to the prices for 23 jewel watches from most other companies.

Recently acquired this tu-tone, OF grade 104 with SR in flag in a salesman case. Supposedly only 1200 made. Sorry for the picture quality but it is really difficult to photograph. I think the tu-tone 16s 104's have among the most beautiful of decorations.

I just picked up a 23j 105 sn1043207 "NR" hunter in a nice Deuber case and made an off for $300 and it was accepted. This is about 79 units before the one that Robert posted. I will post pictures when it arrives.

It has been said before, they made a very attractive watch. Particularly the 16s in this time zone.
Thanks for showing, one of the most iconic logos in my opinion.
