Additional Information

Here is an interesting one with uncommon solid lugs, like wire lugs. Case interior is ink stamped "3068", which loosely corresponds with the equally scarce Citizen "D", which has an identical but yellow plate case/lugs, same movement and is ink stamped "4068". Original mesh  band clamped at 3 points on the lugs and covered them.

Blue dial with 3 diamonds and no second hand. Watch is small for a mens model of the period, measuring 33.2mm counting lugs and  28mm across not counting crown. I had a heck of a time finding a band that would work, and ended up with a Edelstahl expansion band with clamp on lug ends.

Ad material is from 1971 Linebook 177. If you look closely, the ends of the lugs are visible under the band.

1970 Beau Brummell "AZ" in excellent condition and keeping time. Definitely a "first see" for me.
