CH785

1939 campaign version of the Attendant  only available in black.  This is mine above.  I think it's the CH785 although the model number still reads 7H85.  For one thing, the 7H85 was only supposed to come in ivory or brown.  For another thing, I've never seen one that did say CH785 on it.  Also, the painted steel bezel would be consistent with with a campaign clock because steel is cheaper than brass.  It's possible they just never changed the mold to reflect the new model number.  For a production run of fewer than 5,000 units, maybe this wasn't worth anyone's time.
