    Very hard to say without a size reference, but I'll guess and say 16s based on the size of the screws and the engravings. Maybe a Model 7 or 9? This one would have been made in 1923, only a few years before they were bought out by Hamilton.

    Thank you for the response I was hopeing it was a size 8 because I cannot find a Stanley in the listings for any size other than 8 but in 7 jewels not 17 jewels?

    Might also be a size 12 model 3 or 4. Hard to say without measuring the diameter.

    It is a 12s grade 405 model 3, made in 1923. This grade with 17j was made in a total of 390.360 units between 1911 and 1929. It came with a variety of movement decorations but in the same configuration. There were also a variety of names, among others were Ariston, Autocrat, Penn Special, Stewart Special, Sterling, Railroad Dispatch, Time King. The movement diameter of a 12s is 39.78 mm.
