Nice progression, very attractive. Are the lugs soldiered inside the case? Can you get a pic of the lug wire size, material and method?
Thanks for sharing.

Thank you,these cases were made as wristwatch cases,these are not converted from pocket watches cases.
The lugs seemed to be soldered to the case,the lug wire size(thickness)varies from 1.20mm to 2.20mm and range from 10mm to 16mm wide were the strap goes.
Most of these cases are nickel some are silver.
Here is a picture of a Philadelphia nickel case to give you an idea.


Here is another picture showing the watch in the TM-575 US technical manual.

Here is the same watch in an Illinois semi-hermetic case(threaded)nickel case.
