Hi Dave  I think there was past discussion on the International topic.  Nice watch.  It looks like the caseback date code is M9 but the rotor looks like it's got an N0 date code.  Is that correct?  So with BXW on balance cock a swiss to USA mvnt, which doesn't sound too International...:)

the case back doesn't say m9 i am pretty sure it is a n2  also i looked back at the rotor under higher pixels it looks like and n   2 so they do match

I recall we were happy at the time to give this a tentative ID of "International". Thats may call for now.

Dave I don't think anyone took down your box post.  If it was in "watch parts and trade" forum, I think those posts "go away" automatically after a month of no recent comments.  Not sure on this though.
