Strange anomolies with this watch I've obtained.

Inner workings marked; "5AD, 23 Jewels"etc. with oval face (see pics)...square case marked; M3, Y64502....and band possibly not original to the case - with "S" marked on a couple links.  Also, box it came in (at an estate sale) was for a 21 Jewel Dolly Madison. 

Just looking for more info on any of these (or all) parts. 

Thanks for your help!

Watch date entered as 1953?? Movement symbol "arrow" inconsistent w/ dating of this time period. Can't see if there's a alpha-numeric date symbol on 23 jewel 5AD movement picture- and don't know what the "arrow" referrs to. Movement date unconfirmed.  Case dates 1963.
