      This appears to be a R/R grade "Ball" watch with Wind indicated dial, would have to see movement and serial # to date and verify, but all appearances lead to that. Very nice watch

      How does it open as I am unsure?
    3. kerry10456 kerry10456, 8 years ago
      The back and basil will should unscrew. Place in palm of hand face down, using thumb and index finger, twist back cover counter-clock direction, should turn easier after a few turns

      the basil will unscrew also, to adjust the time, with a small stub under basil pulled outward and turn crown to adjust hands
