Watch Description

This was a grab from Ebay.  It appears to be a 1965 Accurist.  What's different about this watch are the indices. The other three 1965 Accurists on here have '12', '3', and '9' on the dial, while this one has '12', '2', '4', '8', and '10'.  The non-numeric indices are shorter and seem to me, art deco like.  Any insight  is greatly appreciated.

Thanks Neetstuff!  There is at least one more listed, but at a much higher price than I got this one for.

The retail price of $35.95 in 1965 is equivalent in purchasing power to about $351.14 today. =o)
