I agree OT, but I'm ok with it staying in here as long as the owner can look to update the watch (sorry case) when it has been restored to it natural glory.

jmh8632, any chance you can se what the case model number is? It will be stanped on the inside back case. From that I may be able to identify the correct movement, crown and other parts.

Unknown until movement is in place and all data is recorded.

I'm good with a 1967 Snorkel ID.  We have ID'ed watches without knowing what movement is in the case.  These others could have a movement swap w/ a recent quartz for all we know.  If we can ID without knowing what movement is inside, I can ID without any movement inside.  We ID based on cases/dial all the time.

That's a pretty difficult call, you need a waterproof crown but without knowing the type and size of the stem, we can't say.

The watch takes a 7BEACD movement, with a 479AWD crystal, 479-1W crown and G786 gasket.

Snorkel it is.
