In the 12 page booklet for the 50th model descriptions written, a gold plated version movement matches nearly in appearance the final design during 3 year period for its design. A 14k case and dial and 14k green gold special gift match the $500. cost of the originally white and green gold recommended pentagons. A platinum case pentagon was an acceptable extra cost option. artbissell

The green gold one was expertly serviced by Dave Cooper. His photos. Notice in preceding movement plate hidden SWITZERLAND marking. Indicates not made in U.S.? Art

All Verithin pocket watches were assembled in Switzerland, including the 50th Anniversary. If you look carefully, you can see the SWITZERLAND mark when the movement is assembled. It's in between the bridges.

Beautiful movement!
