American Academy Denver ???
I'm wondering if anyone knows of a Richard G. Adams from the American Academy Denver I have had this watch for awhile. A internet search shows Archie Perkins as an instructor of the school and the first watch was made for President Harry Truman. This watch is No. 51 has anybody ever run across these before? It would be great Mr. Adams is or was a member...Thanks

I could be wrong, but I think the American Academy is what they called Orville Hagan's school. The watch bears some similarities to the Elgin ebauches that the Elgin School used while Hagan's friend Samelius was in charge there. The students started with either raw metal and a design or with a partially finished rough movement and made a watch as part of their studies. Richard G. Adams would have been the student's name in that case.
