I picked this up from a seller in Paraguay for $6. Nothing comes up for it on the internet. The KT printed on the dial is a shield similar to the Seiko 5. The green dial is aged appropriately and changes shades with the lighting. The R.O.K and N stamped above the serial number looks like a factory stamp. It's not an engraving, it has the same type of metal fatigue around the letters as the stamped serial number. Serviced the movement, re-applied the dislodged indice, new crystal (it's a shame the original faceted crystal was too far gone. That will be replaced with a NOS when I find one), had to completely refinish the case. Apparently no one knows anything about this model, it doesn't exist, but I have it.

dang ... what a beautiful watch - nice job Jerry - looks fantastic. Beautiful brushed finished around the perimeter.

I'm guessing the R.O.K. on the back is Republic of Korea? Possible a KDM as opposed to JDM? It certainly is unique and worth holding on to ....

Thanks fellas. This is one that will be a keeper, it looks great and it's not an easily found model. In fact it's a no where to be found model. I was thinking the same thing about it being Korean Mike. ROK N comes up with Rockwell Automation and Republic of Korea Navy. Maybe a Korean naval watch? That would be cool if it is.

R.O.K. has to be Republic of Korea. If it was Rockwell Automation I imagine they would have put a logo on the dial or something, and not a stamp like that on the back. The stamp font appears to match up with the other factory imprint (other than serial number) and was all done at once. N for Navy? Solid guess. I'd go with that and keep digging. That's a gem - congrats!
