Great horizontal lugs.  Slopped from apex in opposite directions.  Dont' recognize this one. Can we get a photo of the inside and outside case back, or can you tell us whats stamped in these locations?  Please and Thanks.

Added more pics. Looks like 6230BJ on the inside case back.

Geoff, your right, I'm certain this watch has been ID'd in the past as I've even sold a couple but I'm not seeing any ads either. It is very similar to the 1962 Rawlings Lisa has in her collection but noy the same.

UK for now.

Can't quite make out the date code on the outside case back or movement- but it looks like these codes are there.  Looks like I'm seeing M1 on case back and M3 on movement??  10BM-can you confirm please?

The case back does read M1 for sure but I can't tell what the movement code reads. It looks like M1 with my naked eye. I have added a high res photo of the movement code. Good luck!
