One from the junk box

I'm always getting stuff from old watchmakers or stores going out of business. Some cool finds every now and then. Thought I would post this one.

I have no idea what it is or how much it's worth but. It does look cool. And the complication is right up there to me.

Thanks guys. I was going to list it on eBay, but I'm thinking about getting a nice strap for it and wearing it! It's just too cool. I can't stop looking at it. I also have a white plated one with a gray-ish dial. Dial is in bad shape though :( But, they both run pretty good.

Here's the white one. Took the crystal off for the photo because it's in pretty bad shape and I'll have to order that size.

I have had two Orient Perpetual Calendars come through the shop I work in, and I didn't buy either of them.

Needless to say, I am regretting it now. They were some very cool watches.

Movement

It would be great to see the movement whilst being strip down, cleaned and re-assemble, Great Find,
