I've got one of those models...

There is no exact match in Bruce's book... nor do I think it appears in Mike's ID guides with a name....

Not much help, I know.

That one listens to the name "annapolis" or "strap 610" and was introduced about 1949-1950. I have posted my annapolis here.

They were also available with a black dial. Gruen used the name already earlier for a Quadron model.

The dial on the 610 is not an exact match... But that is the same one I've noted for the case. Somehow I missed your ID Thojil. Thank you from me too.
