Hi Chris,

That is a nice looking Curvex. I like the long cases too. Some day I might actually have the money to have one. :o

The only thing that would improve it, is the style of crystal that follows the curve of the watch. The present one with the added step from bezel to crystal certainly doesn't detract but if you want to replicate the original lines of the watch a different crystal will be needed. I think Darhin has them.
All I know is based on hard work & writing by others. I can only aspire to augment this body of knowledge. If I am wrong it is because of my own failings. -me

Thanks Jack! Keep your eye on the Bay, some deals to be found :)

I agree! This crystal is too thick. I have some thinner plastic crystals but nothing this long. I'll check with Darhin. Thanks again Jack!

Deals yes, but not at my level of collecting presently. I've been thinking of writing a post about collecting for under $25 dollars a month. That is where my budget is with the chronic under-employment I presently suffer.

Can you post the case-back data? Helps to have it handy with the picture of the watch.

Looks like a [1938] Curvex Major to me (330-228) given the crease on the bezel and the ever so slightly stubby ends to the bezel. (pictured on page 23 of Gruen ID Vol 1 complete with moon hands)

The case back info, Wadsworth 14 GF 330 295 serial #G063674. It measures about 22mm by 50mm w/o crown. The 330 has a serial # of 584071. I would love to find out what model this is. Thanks Mike!
