Thanks, guys, for your kind comments. Whoever W.R.S. was, he sure took good care of his watch.

TdH,

It has a snap off case back, to open it all you need is the backside of a butter knife.

Lay the watch, crystal side down on a soft towel and place the backside or rounded point of the butter knife between the lugs on the line that seperates the bezel and case back.

Use the lugs as lever and gently pry up on the case back.

The case back should pop off with the movement in it, then slowly work the movement out of the case back for the info you need.

Then we can confirm the year and type of movement to correctly date this fine looking watch.
