A few more watch pics:

Is that the watch in the 99s museum?  I hope not. What we want is a leather band with wear marks to indicate where the buckle was.

Unfortunately,it appears the watch in the museum does have the metal spring band, so that particular one isn't going to help;  https://www.google.com/search?q=shannon+walker+with+amelia+earhart%27s++watch&safe=strict&rlz=1C1GGRV_enUS752US752&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjb89frjvTaAhVM54MKHTzqCF8QsAR6BAgAECc&biw=1264&bih=675

I'd think there would be some value in seeing, for example, that AE had to use the last hole to fasten her watchstrap, indicating that her wrist was smaller than average. I'll keep looking for some early photos wearing a watch.

I'm having trouble posting multiple photos.

No need to post photos taken during the first or second world flight attempts. We know she had a leather-banded watch that disappeared with her.  What we need are photos dating from 1928/1932.  That's the watch that is reportedly in the museum in Oklahoma City.  So far I have only found the one photo taken in 1934.  In all of the 1928 and 1932 photos she's wearing flight suits or jackets that cover her wrists.

I ran across an article about the Selfridge watch given to the English racer several years ago.

That's a 1937 pic taken during the world flight. That watch is sure as heck is not in anyone's collection of AE memorabilia.
