Additional Information

I was at the NAWCC invitational in Toronto and picked up this gem. It is complete- Box, outer box, papers, and what appears to be the original band. After a full service it is ticking away happily. The pics don't do it justice. Movt is stamped M9, but no date code on the case anywhere. 

The movt is based on an AS ebauche, I had it written down but lost it again...

I SUSPECT it may be a Skystar? ;D

Case by Louis Lang, Porrentruy Switzerland.

It might be difficult to make out, but the original price is in the box, $99.95, which in today's dollars is....

$686.52!

Skystar, very cool watch. We've seen it in orange and black dial so far this is the first white version. I have it in my head that white is the "C" variant. Full advert here.
