Additional Information

Next in my Academy Award collection.  I believe this is the "OO".  It is 10K rolled gold plate with a stainless back with a L1 date code.  The 6BC 21 jewel working movement also has a L1 date code.  The dial has patina but is in pretty nice shape otherwise, has a NOS correct band.

Edited to add a new photo with a new band.
