Nice dial and crystal. This must have been one of their higher end watches due to the case numbering and dial.

Thanks for the replies...
The minute hand was damaged and not staying attached so it was off to the watchmaker.. He found some nice hands to suit..
Not a second hand though.. so I found a steel one and this is my first attempt at bluing a hand.. late evening lighting unfortunately, but you get the idea..
