It's a lovely piece. Not sure if the bezel is original to the watch, though - the DNN was featured on late specimens of the -69 with no NASA/Moon "straight writing" on the back (batches of the -69 cases used up in 1970 and 1971), and on the "straight writing" Moonwatch.
I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.

Newly rediscovered in my box of non-runners, this 32mm effort seemed keen enough to fire up, so I thought I’d reward its willingness by wearing it for today (only) before it gets treated to a COA - at the very least! It is un-branded, but has the look of something which might have been produced by Louis Newmark’s factory in Croydon, England in the late 1940s before they started making their own movements.
It runs on an un-jewelled Ebosa 131 which marks time at a leisurely 17,280bph and which is a complete stranger to the word “refined” in any shape or form. Cool numerals, though.
