    Thought this was a Regula but I'm not sure. It has G M Angem and a 21 on it. Plus some numbers. Poor picture, sorry.

    Dave,

    I believe that "G.M. angem" is akin to "Patent Applied For".

    Regards.

    It is German for "Gebrauchsmuster angemeldet". Gebrauchsmuster is similar to a patent but weaker. It lacks the element of innovation. "Angemeldet" means applied for, as stated above.

    OH.. So what's the difference between a 21 and a 25?

    A 21 is older and larger. Probably just about everything is different. Willie X

    It's definitely better built than the modern 25!
