    Thank you toolate.That one is my fav.It broke my heart when I saw the chip in the porcelain above the 1.I guess some one broke it messing with pin you pull out right there trying to set the time.The back is clear,skeleton I guess?It keeps perfect time with the adjustment slam in the middle.Still,I need to have it cleaned.
    1911 Waltham ,size 18,21 jewels 5 positions,SN 18138518.

    It has the number 645 under the 21 jewels.what does the 645 mean?

    Thank you Jason.Great page!I'm slowly learning.I did know the higher the jewel the better the watch,as you can see why my heart broke when I saw the chip.
