I just acquired an anomaly and possibly one of a kind 992B Hamilton. It is an early movement, serial number C4504 with typical RWS dial. Its case is a Wadsworth 14K GREEN gold filled case with serial number N130045. Case screw marks are deeply etched in case frame, no other screw marks. There is no Bunn Special marking inside the case back, no patent info., just the Wadsworth name and 14K gold filled stamp. numbers on case frame is xx45. (presumed match). The crown is the style found on the model 29 Bunn Special case or Sangamo Special rigid bow case. Crown is also green gold, color match with case. It's got wear so is no flash job. Bezel and back and bow have the typical chain link pattern. There is no square cutout by the crown, yet the case has the traditional sleeve to hold stem, which snaps up and down. I bought it off ebay-a buy it now for not much money. It came from an estate, that's all the seller knows (or tells). It came from a Minnesota town with a lot of railroad activity in its heyday, and several watch inspectors. Have any similar watches been reported?? Photos soon.
