Part of the "Curved to fit the wrist" line, the Dickens was introduced in 1938 and produced for two years.
The Dickens is a long watch and identifiable by the notches is in the sides of the watch at the corners of the crystal but you can also spot it using the gold dot that takes the place of the 6 on the dial. It almost gives the impression that the lugs could be flexible but they are not.
Powered by the 14/0 sized, 17 jewel 980 movement, the Dickens only came with one dial option, the AGN dial shown.
It's very similar to the other curved to fit the wrist models like the Clark and Carlisle and perhaps most similar to the solid gold Gilman - but the Dickens is a fine watch in it's own right.
