Hello,
I guess I didn't say that right, how many mm wide is the movement? I didn't mean to get a size in lignes, I have trouble converting those details anyhow. I just wondered if it was the same size as most modern mens watches.

Hello,
The unicorn that I am working on restoring has purple hands just like these, that is what I thought was most attractive, now if I could find a case like this one, I would be on cloud nine. I currently have it in a temporary case just to keep it from getting grimy or dusty. It has the original wavy sunburst type dial but it is faded and dull roman numerals. I like the cathedral hands, are yours blue?

Case and crown questions about my Unicorn which I have been told is a 1927 piece also.
What type of crown should I be looking for and I saw a case I like on a parts website, here is their picture

Would my watch have been in a case like the gold scroll design one shown?
Or would this one from ebay be more appropriate?
