    I don't think it's a 760. The 760 and 761 both had the DuraBalance symbol of a lower case d and b back to back this has the DuraPower symbol of a d an p back to back. I als believe that all 760's were Lord Elgin's and along with the 761's were prominently marked American Made. I've posted a picture of a 761.

    Here's a link into the grade database on the Elgin Watch Collectors site http://www.midwestcs.com/cgi-bin/elgin_grades The reason there's not a lot of information is because it's a Swiss movement. You havea very desirable fancy lugs case, and it is a nice watch, but a 760 is in a different category.
