    Question about stem position

    I have a waltham vanguard 23 j with Montgomery dial with the stem at the 3 o'clock position. I've noticed that most of the watches of this type have the stem at the 12 o'clock position. Can anyone explain to me why the difference and whether it was a factory option or an aftermarket variation? Thanks for your help.

    Maybe yours was a hunting case version of the movement?

    Thank you for that link Dan. I should have noted that my watch is a model 1908.

    Maybe you should post photos showing the watch, movement, serial number, etc.

    No pictures, no help. We can guess all we like, but does that help you?
    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.

    The Hunter ( stem 3 o'clock) movements in an Open Face case were called "Side winder "and curiously, even rare, also existed in Swiss watchmaking
