    Watch caseback Design Identification

    Hey everyone! As some of you know, I recently purchased a 1919 Bunn Special and I'm trying to figure out the design on the caseback. I think it looks like a bearded man while my friend thinks it's an owl. Does anybody have any information about this caseback (see picture). Thanks!

    I think it's a floral pattern to which you are attributing an anthropomorphic form.

    It's remotely possible the horn feature is a stylised Horn of Plenty or Cornucopia symbol.

    Interesting. You're right I'm probably seeing an amphomorphic form, but it is interesting how we can see different things.

    I think you’re looking at it upside down . Clearly it’s the pope.

    Looks like a gorget to me.

    As a huge Star Trek fan I agree it does!
