The watch in question belongs to an acquaintance who solicited my advice. My posting here intends to pick the Forum's collective brain to complement my limited knowledge.I know what I know, and I am very much aware of what I don't know. I know that the more I know the more I know how little I know. I also know that there are things I don't know I don't know. I hope I made myself perfectly clear.

It would be also instructive to everybody.
My apologies Mr. Cleps....although you very obviously know a lot ....i was'nt actually addressing you personally with my question. For forum members intrested in such anomalies then asking would they buy the straight auto piece with punched numbers somewhat forces them to think about the lot and not neccessarilly get themselves strung-up with missing numbers. In future when i'm addressing you i will quote your specific chat.
