    I just picked this 1967 up - really love the dial and the size - and trying to track down the lift angle for it's 6217A movement. I've seen 53 and 54.5 online. Anyone know definitively?

    Also very interested in strap recommendations! Black seems like an easy choice, but the dial it would be nice to pick something that brings out the warmth of the dial.

    Much appreciated!

    Nice one. I think if you look back at the original ads they may have come with ostrich straps as well as bracelets. I need to dig around I think I have the link.
