    It looks like the caliber number is stamped beneath the edge of the balance, next to where the movement spacer is stamped "metal".

    That looks like it's based on a JLC movement from the 40's or early 50's.

    Yep - and it was based on a JLC movement. Here's an interesting article from WatchTime on some old Audemars Piguet watches from the 50's and 60's:

    Thanks for that link. It made me wonder a bit about one of the few really nice watches I have (inherited, natch), a 1958 Gubelin Audemars. I've never opened it up and now I'm curious.
