Just picked up this 6106-7509, a rather out-there early 70's model I've been seeking out for a while.



Rather stoked to get it with its original band, box, and guarantee booklet.



BUT the real gem in the batch was the hangtag, which is of a type I've never seen. It's kind of like a "salesman's sample" I've seen of furniture, a cheapo little version designed to demonstrate how something works. But in this case, it just shows how the bilingual day feature works.



The little "gear bits" at the top and bottom have grip that you can turn in either direction...



which rotates what is, in effect, a "day wheel" made of paper in the middle...



Neat, no? Certainly a first for me!

I really find those funky '70s styles fascinating and the extras are truly a bonus. Enjoy it and wear it in very good health.

I have one also

Got this one from a guy in Canada 3 years ago. It was my Third watch I bought.
Its a little guy and my wrist is 7 1/2 - 8 inch use so I use bracelet extenders when needed.
But I thought it was a cutie one so I got it. Its in very good shape and works great, like to find
the original strap or bracelet if there was one that should be on it.

I cleaned the Dial, Serviced it and Cleaned it up and light polish also.
I think this is its original looks.
