    No, sorry. This is the only picture I have of the watch. My brother actually has the watch right now, it was passed down through the family. Think it was my Uncle's, he traveled a lot. I'm going to get it from him in a week (he lives in a different state). Just looking for any info or guesses on the watch, it currently doesn't run and not sure if it will be worth the money to have it fixed/ serviced. Thanks for your reply!!!​

    Honestly? looks like someone printed their name on the dial. I'm no expert, but it looks wrong.
    Get a case back picture and movement picture and post that.
    Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.

    I think that should read "E.A VanDersall" made by Arnex Time Co. circa 1960.

    You'll want to get the case back off and examine the movement to know more.
