Good ad find Stephen. This is likely a European produced model for the non-US market. No export stamp on movement visible and case appears to have a French or Swiss maker's mark on the inside case back.

I suspect this may fall under the catagory of "International"

I agree with Bob, this is likely an International model. 

It is important to note the inclusion of the casemaker's mark on models such as this. In a period that saw MANY major watch brands sourcing their cases from Hong Kong, this is all-Swiss, and in house to boot.

I agree with this one being an 'International' model. Nice example.

Thank you folks for the identification. I could not find any either. And thank you also for the warm comments about the watch.
