Nice watch. Looks OK and correct. It is one of the harder grades to find in the 0s South Bends. With only 1000 total produced in 9 runs. The winding gear looks to be in rough shape, easy fix.

Again nice watch.

Thanks Keith for info. Maybe you could tell me more how I could fix winding gear? I would appreciate that. And yes, this is very nice watch, even my wife told me she can carry it, and she usually don't care about my watches Smile. It looks better than on my crappy pictures Big Grin

Not a good solution but purchase a junk movement with the same type of gears and swap them. Upgrade!

Remember this is a open face model, the hunter gears are in different configuration.

I think keep the back closed and enjoy it the way it is...
