Just picked this up for $40 at an antique store. Date calculator says march 1970. The original beads of rice bracelet needs some work. The end links need to be adjusted and the clasp doesn't quite latch completely. Needs a new crystal as well. None of these are show stoppers. I don't have access to a case back opener right now to look at the movement, but it is running and the date sets properly at 12:00.

Tony, the bracelet sure looks original based on a forum search. Here is a case back shot. I'll send some pics after my watchmaker takes care of the aforementioned issues.

Yeah man those belong together. If not they should have! The end links a perfect fit for that watch case. Those were made to go together I reckon. Nice watch.

I have a pair of these. Really nice watches. They were more low-end at the time and seem more mid-level all these years later.

Love 'em all, Congrats.
