Here's some extra kicker information on the named President on the case back. Notice the final date was never entered.
He was the president of this company from 1942 until around 1989 when he passed.

Check on the book written by the man who married his granddaughter. You can click on the link and check Chapter 4 about Mr. Thompson.

That's so cool. Like going back in time with all the original packaging. The bracelet is awesome. That guy sure has a long tenure with Warren electric.

I believe he passed in 1989. You can click the link I added. It refers to a book his son-in-law wrote about Mr. Thompson.

Most xlt indeed as Pacerguy might say. A nice find for you. Have you contacted the family to let them know you have this?

Actually I did. Emailed the son-in-law via his website.
I guess they aren't much interested.
I DID get a sales call from one of his associates wanting to know if I was interested in gold/silver stocks, etc.

The link was a good read about a sector of our economy that I had had very little knowledge of...

Great find, I like that it came original and complete with the bracelet and box. The back story is cool, I love when a watch history is known.

Very cool watch with an interesting, documented story; the story is always a nice touch to anything vintage.

Nice catch!
