Additional Information

I have had my eye out for this model for a while now and was pretty pleased to finally see what it actually looks like.  I believe this is an Academy Award "MM".  It has a two-tone 10K gold-filled case with two diamonds.  It is date stamped L1 on both the case and movement.  The 5AD 21 jewel movement is working.  Now to find an expansion band to match the ad : )
