    Can anyone identify these bezels? The one on the right appears to be enamel. Probably a long shot, but hoping someone might know something about them...

    The one on the right likely came from a slyle of case made by several makers in the late 20s and through the 30s. The dial would have been w/o numerals, only minute markings. Elgin and Waltham seem to be the most commonly found but there were also a lot of Swiss ones as well as other U.S. makers. In other words, these bezels are almost generic and it will be difficult to assign one to a specific make.-Cort

    The one on the right resembles the bezel used on the Westfield (Air King) I believe. 1929decembertheamericanwestfieldairkingtrojancrop-jpg.jpg

    Wow! Good sleuthing. The Westfield Air King definitely matches what I have perfectly. I wonder if there is much demand for this part--I have no use for it.

    PS I had found this Awoner watch online with a bezel similar to mine, but the details on the numbers just aren't right.
