Default Sears Roebuck &...Tradition?

During the 1960's and '70's, Sears marketed a line of watches under the name Tradition. I recently picked this one up. Although not a serious diver (no depth rating markings and non screw down crown), it's still a pretty cool. It has an all stainless steel case, 17 jewel A. Schild movement, and domed crystal. Unfortunately the bottom lower lume triangle is missing, but it doesn't detract too much. Interestingly, the case is very similar to a Seiko 6217 (62MAS). It's currently on a WJean repro waffle strap, but am going to get a tropic style for it. I have no idea about the significance of the "Q" on the dial.

I actually have a Sears and Roebuck single shot .410 shotgun that was made by Stevens. Nowhere on the gun is any indication of Stevens arms.

Cheers!
