Is this the first of this model posted on the site? I was worried that it wasnt original because the dial has no sun damage and the crystal is almost perfect. This is my very first vintage watch buy, and it runs and keeps good time. I think I got a steal at 85 bucks but am not sure.

This ad is from Australia in 1960; it shows the model reference #03567, which corresponds to variant BAW.
