cal 1003 but to be sure you need to have the case back opened and post scans of the caliber. You will also find a reference number inscribed in the case back. Keep us posted

Dear Sir, Thanks for your swift reply, will ask a friend jeweler of mine to have it opened an try to Identify.  From my point of view case in no more than 2.5-3mm thick.  I have tried to find information on this particular watch but was not succesfull until today. The only thing close I found was a certain reference 6590 but I don't know if this is the right one.  Thanks for your comments.
I would like a pic of the movement!

Either it's a caliber 1003, as you see at 12 o'clock. You see the number 1003 on the movement, somewhere in smaller figures you see another number like on this. If you click on the pics they enlarge. At about 1 o'clock on the movement below, you can see it's number. The number is 543960 on this. This is a caliber 1002 as you can see at 5 o'clock. Inside the back of your watch, over or under the number you have given is another longer,  in this case it's 378096, and that together with the number of the movement tells me that this is from 1959-1960. The other 4 digit number is only the 'model number', in this case 6454 which isn't to far from yours. Your watch is also quite similar in size and appearence, even though you got some diamonds, as this Ref. 6454, which looks like this. I must say you got a lovely box, that add to the value of the watch If I can have the number of the movement and the number of the watch, I can date it quite close. Cheers Doc
