Third one of these I've seen.  I don't have details on one.  This and the other watch for which I have details both are 1967.  They both have the case SN starting w/ the letter J.  If I remember correctly, they both have the BXW import code, we know this one does for sure. I don't think there's anything on the inside of the case back.  Same dials w/ same diamond settings on all three.  Now a name?

Hope you can post both of these Jim, as two more examples may help w/ questions.  This watch is getting some coverage now.  ..and one for $5, the other for $10.  Wish they had decent yard sales and thrift shops in HI.
