Will,

Page 67 refers to 'additional parts', with this Case specifically a Bezel spring, part # BS334. 

I will double check the Movement as I may have made an error on entry.

Just wondering where the case serial number comes from, as the only one I can see on the case back is "3 - 61631", with some scratches next to the last number that look vaguely like an "8". This can be seen a little in my screenshot, but not very clearly, much better to zoom in on the actual picture above. Underneath can be seen the date mark, N3.

I wonder why the 1979 parts catalogue was never made available to the rest of us?

Anyone else got it, it could prove invaluable in ID'ing many unknowns or future watch additions.

I have Stephen's case catalog but my flat scanner broke and should be repaired this week and I will begin scanning it. When it is finished I will make a cd and send the catalog back to Stephen along with a copy of the cd to be put on the site.
