It is a replacement matt dial, originally it should come with gilt dial with chapter ring.
The bracelet is also later version, originally, it should come with rivet type bracelet.

Tom, for me that serial number should carry a gilt dial as original. It looks like it might be at best a latter replacement maxi dial (Type I?). They were used in 5512s, but normally associated in the 4 to 5 mil. range.

I would also associate that serial number with a revited bracelet.

Thank so much

for all your inputs.

At home when I am hungry or need some loving, I go to the wife.

When I need help with watches, I know where to go...


Thanks again to all.

Tom
