Note: This movement is also a Grade 525, and is marked
"The Marquis Autocrat" on the movement. It is not
my watch, but the information on this search here
in your database should be revised. This run, #34
should all be Grade 525. This watch is currently
on eBay, movement only, but is over priced for me.
Thanks, Ron Degler
