In 1948 the Gene Autry wrist watches were introduced but Wilane Watch Co. There were two variants of those, a round version and a Tonneau style with Gene and his horse. There are difference in production graphics of these rounded variants, one "fat" and one "thin" faced Gene. Then there's a animated one produced also. Thethree companies that produced these same graphic round cased pieces were Wilane, Lancaster and New Haven(Muros). I have shown all three side by side and the Tonneau cased variants. The Wilane variants are 1948, the Lancaster is also 48 and the New Haven is 1951.
Thanks for looking and hope you enjoyed seeing the different variants of the early Gene Autry watches.
