    Hey Mark, I'm no expert but it looks like an old Sm300. Michael aka MFB71 has a 1969 SM300 and I'm sure he could shed some light on it.

    Try to check movement inside, that looks too new to be an oldie, maybe a Watchco?

    Certified is spelled correctly, and no stubbies under the lume so those are good signs.

    Based on the case-back, it looks like a WatchCo or CousinsUK rebuild. Of course, the real test is the movement. Should have a calibre 565 (preferably) under the bonnet.
    And keep your son away from it. A couple of wild nights out with his friends will no doubt trash this watch.

    Dont know what happened to my earlier post.

    Teeritz is correct the caseback is too legible. My case is from 1968 and the inscription is well worn.

    Also, there appears to be no obvious ageing.

    If it was from the late 60's the indices and hands would look much warmer than that.
    So it's either been redialed or it's a Watchco.
    Just search for Watchco and you'll find plenty of information.

    The letter 'A' in the word 'WATERPROOF' denotes that it's a modern case. Looks like a WatchCo or Cousins job.

    Just check the number inside the caseback, if it's a 165.0324, then it's a modern Watchco...
