hi jeff and chuck

not that different, i think you'll find it's made from the same case blank with a slight adjustment to the milling machine. thanks for the pics as they remind me that my 703 has been resident at a local watchmakers for a while now awaiting reconstruction. i had originally bought it for spares and had pulled it apart to fix a Monaco that had been found at the bottom of a tin of paint!?!

Hamiltons and Bulovas were available for relatively small change, at the time, and were a good souce of unavailable cal 11/12 spares... not any more.
