Note: Specifications are accurate, but movement picture
is for sn 15088105 (later than image shown) has
all-gold lettering, adds "adj. 5 positions" below
No349, has different font for "349" (Roman, not
san-serif). Otherwise, designs on balance cock and
back plates is the same. I will try to send
additional image at some point as second
reference. -rnfwatch
