Watch Description

This was my Grandfather's Watch and it has been passed down to me. L3 date code on the case. L2 date code on the 10CSC movement.   The hour marks look like the ones on the Ultimatic but the Second ticks don't match the pictures I have seen of it. Would love to know a bit more about this piece, either way I will wear it with pride!

I would go with Ultimatic for this. I believe your dial has been refinished, so the original markings have been changed.
