I'll admit I'm a little stumped with that  movement Date symbol?  A diamond?

I don't know that ai've ever seen it before... And on an 8AN, 17 jewel movement?

I guess we go with the case serial of a 1928 watch?

My guess is that the movement symbol is a square for 1927 with a well lined up lighter crescent moon for 1928, visually distorting the lines of the square. I think I can see the inner curve of the moon inside the square.

Dictator looks like a good match.
