So thanks to Jack I have a running 420SS movement with a decent dial (and decent timing so far).

Now need a 'case ring' and crown to finish the project. I didn't realize until yesterday that the package that had all the parts when I purchased it off eBay was missing the case ring that secures the case back (duh...).

I don't even know when to look for one to be honest and this might come down to finding another salvage case that fits, so suggestions are welcome as this is not meant to be a collectable piece, simply a project watch for me. That said, I'd hate to just sell off the movement and dial--I was going to wear this when I got it sorted.

The case back reads "420SS-808", which I think puts this in the mid-1950s. I've also included a snapshot.

Thanks again in advance--great forum.
