    I'm guessing you already have examples of all 4 casebacks in your collection?

    Not yet. Type 4 is currently for sale, pickup only, in a remote location in Papau New Guinea. Might have to pass. A face to face meeting could be problematic for my face. :)

    Speedmaster engraving not aligned. Probably engraved afterwards. I would not consider it as a new type

    The hallmark ADB with the tree is the Swiss company, Donzé-Baume SA.
