Additional Information

Here is an interesting one that appears to me to be a dress face Apollo. I'm pretty sure it's the first that I have ever encountered. Overall excellent condition with no plating wear and a super clean apparently original face with raised gold logo and numbers.. Band is a period replacement installed by me. Crystal is an older replacement with 90 degree angled edges that slightly distort and make the numbers appear closer to case opening edges. The apparent line at sides between the numbers and opening edge is the crystal.  Face is actually a perfect fit to case. Crown is also an older replacement which is fine by me as it's easier for old finger winding......Original dust cover and ring in place.

Running and keeping time.

The case is certainly an Apollo, no doubt for me. The dial could well be original even though we've not see this variation in the Apollo case it does show up in cases of this era.
