greatly appreciated. I don't know the serial number of the watch, and I don't seem to be able to identify the approximate year, and Mark of the dial..... even after scouring the usual sources. Thank you in advance!

The 5512 stopped production in the 1970s, and the dial is indicative of a late production run of the 5512s. I'd date the 5512 circa 1974 based on the font. The letter "t" of the abbreviation "ft" has a very distinctive hook on the bottom, whereas in the later versions of the dials in the late 1970s the "t" is not as sharply hooked, also in the later dials the cross of the "t" lines up with the hash on the "f".

my 2 cents.....
