Additional Information

I picked this off the bay a few days ago. Looked thru the models and adverts but no luck. I'm thinking maybe the Senator family. Case is L9 and the Movement is L8. It has what looks like a Top half of a Heart design on top and bottom of case and a dip in the middle of the case on both sides. I'm hoping the pics are good enough to see. It is running but definitely needs a service.

Yep a good match. 1958 movement in a 1959 case, all good with me.
