    Full Description:
    Waltham quartz wrist watch with day and date, black dial with green luminous markers, white Thunderbird wings logo on upper half, silver hands with luminous inserts and silver sweep second, heavy stainless steel (SS) round water resistant case with raised bezel and extended lugs, approx. 32mm wide x 36mm lug to lug, grey leather band. Very unusual and attractive Waltham watch in excellent condition!
    Note on advertising logos: on all but a few of the logos (mainly Packard from the Hamilton company and Studebaker from South Bend), the emblems would have been commissioned through a professional dial company after they left the watch factory to have the logo applied.  For instance, a car dealership might have them added as a promotion; a motorcycle club would have ones done for each of their members, etc.
    On the pre-company watch/logo combinations, what my father always chalked them up to (if he didn't catch them as 'modern' knockoffs, of course) was that in some legitimate cases (say, for a car club), the members would need to provide their own watch to which the emblems would be added.  Someone might have wanted a Harley logo on "Grandpa Bob's" old pocket watch, and would have had the dial pulled from that.  Again, it would be nice if there were a way to track when emblems were added to watches, but even if the dial companies kept detailed records that far back, it's unlikely that they would have published them.
