▲ The case is a robust 1-piece construction (monocoque), complete with soft iron cover on the caseback for anti-magnetic protection.

▲ The caliber 5625A beats at 28,800 bph which is considered hi-beat in its era (late 1960s).

▲ This is one of the early 56KS movements with special external regulation feature. On the side case between lower lugs, there is an External Screw which covers the access hole to the external regulator mechanism. User can regulate the movement by inserting a small slotted screwdriver (around 0.8 - 0.9 mm) into the access hole and turn the regulator lever.
