Additional Information

 I am at a loss on this one. Case and movement both M7. Unusual textured gold dial with lume on hands and indices. Classic Art Deco style 12, 3, 6 and 9. Face is marked "self winding".

I actually have a second example of this watch that is also a 1967, but face is marked "automatic" with lumed hands, and brown painted centers on indices (see last photo). That one will be uploaded as time permits.

I am going to guess the lume on the center of rectangular indices isn't original and added at a later date. 12, 3, 6, and 9 have a dot on outer edge that appears original, as well as the hands being originally lumed.

I looked a couple times for this one, I really don't find anything like it in the adverts. I have this number font on a couple 1960's watches, it's one of my favorites.

I'm Unknown for now.

There's that elusive 12 font again. We see it on a number of watches but they usual go un-named.

Unknown for me too.
