hi Paul

I'm assuming you need this to repair/replace a similar existing watch? Can u upload a photo of the existing watch?


Time, even vintage time, goes too fast for my tastes.

Hi Paul,

is it set with two diamonds? If so it is called the Veri-Thin Faith or All-Star H. It was sold as part of the All Star series first and later got the other name. If so I have a white gold and a yellow gold one.

I assume there were other watches with the same style / caliber combination, one without diamonds, one with 4 diamonds. They are all from 1952 / 1953.

Here are the pictures from my two Veri-Thin Faith which you asked for.
The Yellow Gold one I bought as NOS, this is why I know the name. I have never seen the watches being advertised under that name.

index.php?t=getfile&id=2872&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=2871&private=0index.php?t=getfile&id=2873&private=0

The inital All Star model which has been advertised in 1952 came with a different dial which was quite fancy, it was dark outside and had a round inner white part with the markers. I have attached an ad for reference. Also the band was different to the Veri-Thin Faith.

This is WR761 and I would wonder if WR752 (no diamonds) and WR757 (4 diamonds) would have a different style / caliber combination. The Catalog shows WR752 and 761 with the All Star dial with only the numbers 12 and 6 and the WR757 with the dial of my yellow gold version. So I think that with they did mix dials just like the changed the sales names.

OK, so I assume you are looking for WR752. Unfortunately I do not have one, but may be someone else in the forum can be of help.
