Looks like a match, but a 10 year difference from price list & ad date (1955) to watch date (1965) may be an issue with naming. Can you provide photos of movement and case back?.

Was M5 a typo or indeed the date codes on movement and case? 1955 is L5

Sorry about the typo Bob. I have long nails and tend to hit the wrong key. L5 is correct.
