Watch Description

This appears to be a 1946 Knickerbocker.   It is a 10KT Yellow Gold Plate with a 8AH movement.  The date code is 46 and also 13.  Not sure about that.  It has a cream dial with yellow gold applied hour markers.  Just finished servicing it and added a new leather strap.  I will be on the look out for the orignal mesh bracelet.

Based on the thread I am going to go with Knickerbocker.  This one isn't cut and dry for sure.

I'm going to say probably Knickerbocker, according to the previous discussion.

1946 Knickerbocker.

"As an adjective, Knickerbocker refers to people or objects from Manhattan (New York City, before 1898)."


Also Baggy pants as worn by men and boys. Similar to 'Plus Twos and Plus Fours', breeches of a type worn by golfers.

Knickerbocker, Clinton …  or Comproller or Chief.  . I cannot tell the difference between any of these. I have what I think is 47 knickerbocker with original mesh bracelet. but it might be a Chief. lol. or Clinton...I am suspecting that the difference was really only a name change for regions where they were marketed. I have seen a Spanish advertiment listing it as Chief is the only reason I say that.
