i don't think it is original,,the band... although the band is from the period and is 10kgf..it is pretty old...i'll have to check the ads again..i  a nice brown band would make this watch....

Is case serial # 123? Also, what is the movement date symbol? Thanks.

The expansion band appears to be more of a 1950's type which has been trimmed to fit.

Good call on the Case Seriel Number and Movement Datecode Darren. Case dimensions would also be nice, I'm all for these to be Database a requirement at this point.
