Fifth  It looks like a yellow case, but that's just the picture/light? I'd think white vs yellow w/ SS crown.

I agree with everything but your description of the movement as "Chronograph" :<)

Jeff,

What is isochronism?

Scratch the question, I just Googled the term. You're correct, this Movement is not a chronograph'

I wonder about the term railroad grade too -unless you mean this watch is nice enough to wear on any train ride- even to Easter Sunday church service - as I would agree to that daffynition :)
