Thanks Wayne I would have stayed up all night and looked at it but I'm the Christmas chef. Got a lot of prep work to do. I'll be glad when the holidays are over so I can get back to my watches. :-)

The batch of 5000 movements were likely ordered and manufactured in 1926.

I'm not sure how long it takes to manufacture 5000 movements, ship, case and sell but I'd say 6 months+

Pretty big order to manufacture these in 1927 for sale in May of that same year.
