i've been offered this watch case that i'm looking to put with a 7924 i'm negotiating with a private seller on. I trust the seller on this case, but just want to confirm the accuracy of application

i've sometimes seen this case offered as the "original" case for 7922s, 7923s, 7924s and even a couple of times for 7928s.

it has the original punch'd paper with serial 139XXX (in case i win the lottery here and someone with that watch's serial number is intersted, contact me), but the punch'd paper has a printers date of 1952 with a rubber stamped date of Aug 1958 ( i could be mis-interpreting the printers date code)

appreciate any input before i purchase this case

slips in nicely, with the fliplock sliding into the slot on the right side

i suspect the entire clasp (unfolded) might slip in but haven't tried it - seemed to cumbersome a way to hold the watch and to remove from the insert
