    Croton Nivada Gretchen ID

    I would appreciate help in dating this piece and in identifying the movement. And what the 360EL on the dial refers to. Also I wasn't sure what to do with the hand missing lune. I thought I might just remove it from the hand that has the lume. Before I might do this, do you think this is a radium dial. Thanks

    I believe I just answered one of my questions. I see number 1256 by the balance. I assume it's an ETA. Still any other other details would be great.

    It is indeed an ETA Cal. 1256, the first generic rotor movement by ETA:

    bidfun-db Archiv: Uhrwerke: ETA 1256

    ...which places that watch well into the early 1950s. And that was before the days of Tritium so the lume must be Radium.
