Enamel Bezel Atlantic

#1 Post by GJH » Sun May 13, 2018 7:22 am

This popped up on Fred's site and I was floored.
This is an Enamel Bezel Atlantic that looks NOS.

The case is in perfect condition, and the dial is NOS.

Had to grab it, knew it would go fast, his stuff always does.

Very beautiful! Rectangular(ish) watches especially the early vintage ones are lovely.

Is the black area paint or onyx/something else ?

Not sure,
I would guess the bottom one is enamel (looks more solid)
but the others look like enamel paint.

In Fred's new book, he touches on this subject.
Hot debates in the past on the forums, some like adding
black to engraving, others don't.

The patterns on these bezels look nice in Black IMO.

Very nice model. I have a model to restore with an Elgin Tivoli case.

Regards.
