    Case Back Inscription Help

    I received this Croton case in a box of watch parts. It is engraved on the back with TU 2-2558 A.R.A.U.. Anyone have any idea what this could relate to?

    Beat me to it. February 25th, 1958 was indeed a Tuesday.

    Not sure about the ARAU, however. It seems to say "A.R.A.U."

    Thank you but I don’t think so. The Aura is actually an acronym. A.U.R.A.

    You're both wrong, it's "A.R.A.U."

    Re: Case Back Inscription Help

    I'm interested in the clamshell case. Is it a chronograph case? I'm guessing not, since there would be some sign of openings for pushers.
