    Nope. There is nothing to pinpoint the exact year of manufacture, and we don't provide valuations here.

    For that matter, it's a good question if this isn't a franken - the dial appears to have radium lume and a very 1950s design. Meanwhile, the case markings ("water resistant") suggest 1969 or later, which does not match the lume and the dial design.

    Water resistant can be found on watches from the Forties onwards. People seem to assume that it was only used after waterproof was banned but that just isn’t true.

    Fifties yes. I doubt too many people are expert enough on this brand to tighten that down much more.
