I guess even the occasional watchmaker may be color blind.I used to know the ref number these autos, which I believe have the highly esteemed Pellaton 8541s ticking inside, so please someone else chime in.I'm a big fan of these double logo'ed pieces from the 60s. Can't tell much about this one from one picture. I know for a large American grocery chain (A&P), these were the proverbial gold watch given to loyal employees who punched their last time clock. I've seen several of these that were personalized. And usually they were in remarkable condition, probably spending 99.9% of their life tucked in a sock drawer.If it were mine, I'd be looking for a new date wheel.Good luck,Larry

If somebody can correct me then i'd be delighted.The white lettering on Tonys example seems a lot brighter than the crown and bezel wear, when compaired to all other early (original) '60's variants of the same ilk.
