I recently purchased this watch which is in fair condition with radium intact but the dial has "crackled" ?lacquer.Is this a common dial problem? All appears genuine. On the inside of the case back is written I.57 and 6536 1. At 6 o'clock the case has inscribed BREVETT with a "plus" sign with case No: 112092. From this site I understand that the numbering in the 1950's is a problem. Would you think that the item/numbering is correct? At 12 o'clock case inscribed "6536 1". Happy New Year to you all.

This is a IV-55 case frame in my humble opinion.

Here is one on eBay that just ended today
within a few numbers of yours.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/200690722276?ss ... 1423.l2649


112xxx is IV 55
I am not saying it is kosher but caseback is correct.
I have catalogued about 42 6536's
112,xxx should have a 100/300 RED Depth rating on
the dial IMHO. 112,4xx has one.
6 o'clock hour marker should be whiter than other plots.
Bezel insert should have NO 1 minute hashes
and a pointed 4.
The stamping between the lug sounds correct.

case number 1557** and the case back date code II.56. The dial has the gilt-print depth rating.
