Additional Information

Movement and caseback both dated "L6". Stainless steel case with black sunburst face and ssteel markers. No other apparent examples of this casing/face combination per 1955 pricelists or ads besides the 23 "A" that I can find. Ad text calls out radium hands and face, but illustration doesn't match this description and neither does this subject watch (which matches illustration). Band is a Speidel replacement by me. I love the black/stainless combination of this one.

These were typically luminous, but I often see with or without the radium dial/hands when with the black dial. Not sure if there is a variant difference.
