Glad I found this post. I was totally confused with some of these letters. Learn something new everyday.

OF means Oysterflex

AG (or Ag) is the symbol for Silver but not sure of the context in which you saw it used.

No time to go through 191 posts - maybe quite the actual post?

I see - in that case I believe the OP meant “All Gold”

There is little change he meant Ag (the symbol for silver) because they don’t make silver watches.

Letters following the ref number are descriptors to ID a watch from others of the same model.

In the case of the Air King here, the BKAO simply means Black/Arabic dial.

That'd seem to fit the context, cheers

I’m new here, and add to look up the term, “Pelly”. Maybe add that? Maybe Hulk and Kermit?
