Hi, the case is a push-out waterproof case, and can be pushed out from the front. What a beauty! Not seen this one before.

I have the exact watch minus the star. It was id as a WaterTight. I don't know if that helps.

With the dial, looks like the "Phantom", but that model has no stones.

I'd say the star with the diamond was an add on and the watch is the Phantom.

I agree Shawn. Very close match to ads.

If you take out the diamond star it's an exact match. I just sold one recently and the case, dial, hands are all bang on to the ad. Just as I may order a custom dial, customers could order dial embellishments which I think we should ignore when seeking an ID. We won't find an ad that matches exactly but we should exercise some commen sense with our speculations. For me, it's the Phantom, 3 stars despite the dial upgrade.

Looks to be a Phantom defiantly, I think the id on mine was wrong.

Looks like Phantom to me.  Mustant- what does it say right under the L4 date code on the case back?  Looks like ???  PLATE  maybe?
