Default this unusual thing

hi everyone , hope you are in a good mood.
i just pocked up this watch and i'm totally confused about the history and movement of this beauty.
i was wondering if someone out there could help me with this watch.
as u can see in the pics the main crown is on the backside of the watch and another crown positioned on 4 is for changing the date.
i searched the net but found little info on it so here are the pics:
thanks in advance

That would appear to be an early (1972 ish?) hybrid electronic watch. Not unlike the the Citizen Cosmotron. Probably got this movement in it.....
Some history HERE
Lucky man, you appear to have a real rarity there, I'm jealous.
edit:- yet more information HERE and HERE


Less than 2000 pieces made!

i bought it from a local seller for 30$ . neither him nor me didn't know anything about the watch, so it seems it was a good deal

With less than 2000 made, about 45 years ago, don't hold your breath while looking for one, proverbial rocking horse droppings!

Agreed, although I'm patient and already got some pretty weird stuff
