Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

I don't have a yellow Perry to compare this to but I have compared it to several (polished) 14K YGF Wadsworth cases in my collection and the color is less intense, although I would not call it pinkish and it is definitely not white. I'll do some more polishing and compare again. The base metal of th...

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

My impression is that this is an all-white watch. Look at the picture of the midsection with the movement, the one labelled "6205d" on the auction. The part that is normally covered by the back looks white, while the exposed parts, like the backs of the lugs, are slightly discolored. The "part the ...

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

I've been trying to attach a photo that shows clearly that the middle section, which I have polished with sunshine polishing cloth, is yellow gold. For some reason the photo refuses to go through.

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

The case is Wadsworth. Definitely two-tone. Bezel, back and crown WGF, middle section YGF. The matching serial numbers are visible in the listing photos: https://www.ebay.com/itm/6205-vintage-and-fabulous-WGF-Hamilton-Perry-in-super-condition-all-original-/122981908305?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&ssPageN...

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

So I pulled the case back off and the last four digits stamped on the case back match those on the center section. I did not pull the bezel off as that does not seen necessary to prove the point, the WGF back and YGF center section matching numbers. Creates a two-tone case which I think is interesti...

Re: 1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

I already took a little sunshine polishing cloth to the center part, it is definitely yellow gold. I'll take the case apart and look at the serial numbers. I've had my eye on this model for a long time as it is one of the most interesting models with art deco (I would say streamline moderne) design ...

1931 Perry - WGF/YGF?

I've just received the 1931 WGF Perry that was on eBay last week. It's in pretty nice condition overall although not exactly as described ("no brass showing") but I was expecting that. I think it will clean up nicely if I decide to keep it. What I did not notice in the photos (but can see there now)...

amplitude question

I’d like to better understand specific causes of low amplitude, beyond general comments I have read that poor amplitude can be indicative of “problems” or “the health of the movement.” Specifically, I understand that the following can cause low amplitude: 1. Anything that impedes the balance swingin...
