It's definitely a Quadron 69. I believe the catalog image shows the luminous dial, so the design of the sub-seconds register may be a little different. But your dial is the same as any other raised number dial I've seen on this model.

The other thing to consider it that many models in this era had several different dial options. If your case and caliber are a match, you have a match regardless of whether the dial matches the catalog image.

How does that crown work? Is it a stem in a tube that “hugs” the case? And is it really waterproof . Splash-proof (dont try this athome :S) or more a so called dustproof crown?
