Additional Information

1964 Date King "M". Another example of the mysterious "Deco 12". Dial is an "X" shadow style with date window at "3" position. Crown sports a "B".

Recently purchased in a second hand store, overall pretty good condition with scratched (but restorable) crystal and a good balance and hairspring. Currently not running - wound tight. Hopefully it just needs a service.

I'd agree with the Date King 'M'. Nice thrift store find and ad match.

Thanks Ken, I couldn't leave it there, "it's a watch no man can resist!" (plus it was cheap.......)

Dial version is a good match to the "M" variant. Found a similar "GG" variant with a slightly different dial.
