13 EB should be in the Movement model field, Valjoux reference in the 'additional comments'.

Nice one.

1965 'Chronograph' works for Me.

Great watch.

Timeenough, the date code on the movement appears to be a match to the M5 on the case. Can you confirm? Thanks.

DarHin,

you are correct, they are both M5. As I understand it this dates it to 1965, is that correct?

Yes, and with both dated the same it means that it's more likely than not that the movement is original and hasn't been replaced at a later date.

Here's the date code explanation:

Timeenough, when you get a chance, can you take another pic of the movement that is more clear and shows the model #?

The pic of the case back is perfect.

Thanks

DarHin,
I will take another pic, prob late tonite or tomorrow. I really appreciate all the info you guys provide. I'm kind of new to this but am increasingly interested in the history of these watches.

Again, thanks!
