I like the color combination; unable to find an ad to narrow down a model number; Accutron

Catalog states that case 320 (Yellow) uses crystal 320AY - 30.1MM Armored Yellow

Looks like that 320 case housed at least more than one dial type

The case is like my 1964 Accutron.

I made a mistake, on closer inspection i can see the ink stamp better and the case is a #397

is the caseback original to the watch?

 

wouldn't the caseback state the gold plate bezel along with the stainless back?

 

just an observation.

Good question, and I don't know the answer.  Maybe sometimes yes, other times no.  Not much help from me.

I've never seen a Swiss made watch caseback say that like the USA made watches sometimes do......

I agree with Mr Smith sometimes yes, other times no, that's kind of Buloba handling of Accutron...
