That's mine. Show yours ?
If you group them by age, you will notice the case shape/ profile & the overall design is quite consistent at each period.
The sturdy & concise Mid 60's case (about 37mm case size),
the funky, angular Late 60's case (about 40mm case size) +
a pair of similar funky design Early 70's Dani set with outstanding outer bezel insert design; &
the larger, ergonomically cut case [curved cut at both sides of the underside] of the 70's (about 44mm case size)

It’s really cool to see some of these older models, something I am yet to research and discover for myself. Interesting also how case sizes and overall dimensions have changed over the decades.
Thank you for opening my eyes here.
