    Congratulations! Lovely respirator in excellent condition. But why do you say it is a ref. 6680?

    Ic, probably the case reference number. The catalog reference should be something like A 769x.

    You have been busy lately Georges. The case number appears to be 051?967 so not the case No either.

    The case reference number is on the inside, it is different from the case serial number on the outside, but thanks for the information! Case number dates it to 1971. Probably the bracelet has a date for late 1971 or 1972.

    The bracelet appears to have 071 at the hinge.

    Sorry in my home made notes the “case number” is the number which can be seen on the outside of the case before about 1970.

    What additional information do you get from the case reference number? I am pretty sure that my older Zeniths do not have a number on the inside but I may be wrong.
