That's in great shape I also have one in the collection but no box. Yours was issued in 1956 from the serial number on case back.

Very nice Ed,

 

could only be better if it was one of the 1950 production run in a 50 dated box.

 

Just go's to show how late these were being issued, In theory the A17a had long superseded It by 61.

I posted it under "Another A-17 watch". It has no history as it was a swap meet find. It's only note worthy description is the low s/n. I did get the period correct band for it.
