Re: Pass the Ketchup!

Very nice !!! These are trick and slick! One I've seen like it was a 1982 model 205521 with a 116 movement. Don't know what change was made to turn the 104 into the 116.

Re: 1951 Timex Marquette

What makes it different is the dial. The case is definitely first generation Monroe (1949-1952), but the dial is fully numbered with italicized numerals, quite different from what is in two different ads, and different from actual models. Here is a '49 and a '52, and they both have basically the sam...
