Excellent. I've got the black face with the arabic numerals. I don't think I've actually worn it once though. Probably should sell the bastard. It really is a fantastic watch.

I also rock the Le Locle, albeit the white faced version.
Hell of a deal at ~300 USD from Amazon. Nice ETA automatic movement, sapphire crystal and decent looks.

Beautiful watch-very classic. It should last you a long, long time. Great purchase!

Thoughts on it?

Worth getting a nice leather strap?

Late 50's/early 60's at a guess. Looks nice. Yes get a nice strap.

Anyone know any more about Services Watches?

Looks nice - there's some detail on the brand here: http://www.thewatchforum.co.uk/index...howtopic=19335

Not sure if that's accurate or not...but I was looking for a nice looking vintage manual wind watch and this fit the bill.

Interesting dial. Nice vintage piece.

why isn't the roman numeral for "4", is as "IIII".

My Roman is rusty, but isn't it "IV"

FAILwatch?

'IIII' is usually (but not always) used on clock and watch faces as it is believed to visually balance better opposite 'VIII' than 'IV' would.
