We are content to affirm on the fully reasoned opinion of District Judge Leibell, 119 F.Supp. 593, holding invalid Design Patent No. Des. 161,296 for 'Combined Watchcase and Bracelet' issued to the individual plaintiff on December 19, 1950, and declining to find defendant guilty of unfair competition with plaintiffs in the sale of watchcases and bracelets. If the new patent code, 35 U.S.C. § 103, July 19, 1952, is applicable, the result, we believe, must remain the same.
