    Can't Post in Discussion section for the CPR Waltahm Records

    I found a couple more Waltham '83 CPR watches to add to the list of known serial numbers. I went to put them into the discussion section so the table could be updated and there is no reply button at the bottom of the last post. Therefore I have no way to let Kent or, whoever does the editing...

    My Lastest Tu Tone

    First tu-tone I have seen in this pattern. It's an 825 Waltham in a badly worn Fortune case so I think the 24 hour dial is original.

    Help with 1912 Crescent Street with Wind Indicator

    Is this 24 hour dial most common on these watches? How many of these were made? The DB has it as only 1 run of 1000. Serial number 20091113. It's in a 14K GF Crescent Watch Case Co. case. I like this style case where the stem stays with the movement when you open it.
