    Tony, is that a 34mm?

    You find the neatest watches.

    This just came in, little project watch.. Missed this dial configuration so took a lowball offer on it late last week, under market value.. Quite like the ageing! :)

    Maybe 2576 with 342/344. Cape Cod and polywatch are good stuff!

    That sounds right, it doesn't have the beefier lugs like your 344 does.. Love the numerals on these though! Is Cod cloth like a jewellers rouge cloth?

    I think there are two versions of 2576, the thinner lugged ones and the thicker ones with bevels. The thinner lugged ones might be earlier. Cape cod works better on stainless IMO.

    Yup, correct! it's a 2576-13 with a gleaming cal 342! Amazed at how the dial has aged but the movement is like new!

    Happy to have helped - but technically, you contacted me so I can't claim the points on my card. :p They go to Kyle.
