Yeah...new year, old watches!

I have had this beauty in my collection for over 10 years, picked it up at a rummage sale with a box of other watches for $2! I finally got around to having it cleaned and restored. The D-A-V-I-S Supreme, Prestige Watch Company on Rotor, German 25 Jewel Durowe 562 automatic, dates to late 1950's. Caseback has Canava American Watch Factory LTD, Canada printed inside......

Tom its editing the word 'd-a-v-i-s' and making it @@@, that is why links wont work. Can you check list of no allowed words? Created a new directory that does not have @@@ in the name for now.

Thanks a lot Gary ! Smile Yeah ya know, I think this is actually my first cushion, or even
squarish shaped case ! It’s really cool sir ! Oh, and the NATO actually came on
the watch, so didn’t even have to add that. ..But might have tried to track one down
at some point because it really is a neat combo like you said.

Thanks again Gary, and love that Davis Supreme once again too !!!
