My Saturday morning project today was finishing this one. I finally got a new set of hands for it after 6 weeks of effort. The movement actually has a "circle" and a "triangle" date code. I started out with this non-running wall flower.

And after a little love and attention it blossomed into this and is running nicely now.

I just love a story with a happy ending. :)

Additional Information: 

Case is 14kt GF Double Hinged.   24.5mm X 28.5mm.  Lug end to lug end is36mm.   Don't know if the hands are original - they appear newer??    First number on case looks like a mis struck 6 so have put it in as a 6.

Box that the watch came in looks like the original case - double signed - a little worn, but still nice.  

This watch needs a new crystal if anyone can help with that???  would be most appreciated.

EDIT:   Looks like a "NORMAN"  to me???   

EDIT 2: From the adverts the  hands appear to be correct for this model.

Edit 3:  The movement is a 9A so will change it from 9AN.
