Here is a mid seventies entry, manual wind. I don't think I have ever come across a dial like this before.

Here is a link to one in the database from 1976, and I had one of these models some time ago. I like the style of it and the color fade dials of this period. Model 10210-W

I recognize that one immediately, 10210-W it is.

So much for a snappy model name!

I'm in for 10210-W.

I assume that there is a name assigned to this watch as well. Like all watches of this period which had a 'model' number, a name to go with the number would be ideal.

From the information seen on these 1970s catalog sheets, the '10210 W' would be the model number but they usually still had a name during this period. I agree that the hang tag shows the correct model series number with the 'W' indicating 'white gold' but I'm still suggesting that these watches also had a model name. We just haven't found it yet.

One advert found but has no mention of a name. Still looking. Dates to 1976.
