    From the case back we get:
    - 54xx calibre movement that beats at 18,000 bph
    - a manufacture date of June 1970 or perhaps 1980

    Apart from the hands; the watch is also missing the stem and crown.
    The bracelet is not original.

    No telling what condition the movement is in but since the hands, stem and crown are missing; it is likely someone was inside and discovered it beyond repair. You would have to open it up to know for sure.
    Since this movement has been out of production for 35 years or more; the only source of parts will be from a donor.

    June 1970 - that was about the latest for the 54xx movements
