Thomas, I'm pretty sure this is a "Strap 1" that will contain a 13 ligne Rebberg cal. 870. I believe that the telltale sign is the wire lugs running the entire width of the case. But I think the comparatively soft-cornered case and double sunk dial also suggest Strap 1. But I've only had this model once before, so I could easily be surprised and find something else in there. But Jack, Timeticker and Cary have what appear to be the same watch and they've all had the 870.


The double sunk dial is the tell. I've never had a 771 (or one of the other movements , of which I have two) with one.
