    I believe so, i don't see any signs of franken or recasing. The movement matches the case perfectly and the case is equal in the three examples.

    Maybe it was a showcase watch (it was very unusual the use of a crystal back in the era...), with the intention to prove that the microtor movement (a novelty back then) was an automatic movement so efficient that even could be used in a pocket watch (just like the Eterna did with the Eterna Golfer)

    But i would love to ear other opinions...

    Yes, the 218 was an evolution of the 215 and the 218-2 was a 218 with date

    Nice job, but I think we got it. There is no need to post the video three times in different topic ;)

    I think the crown should be signed as the watch is from the 60's.

    I know there is a good reference on Polerouter dial text on this forum. It would be nice to have something similar for crowns and casebacks.

    The crown should be signed, crystal is a replacement, lume on dial and hands has degraded in an, imo, not very atractive way, logo on caseback with better definition than usual (wich is somehow strange in watch that looks having many miles on wrist), movement, far from pristine but, acceptable.

    IMO it looks pretty good. Don't think the crown and crystal are a big deal and case looks good overall...at the current price ($475) not a bad deal. Just my two cents.:)

    And I think the lugs look sharp and really like the finish on the internal bezel.
