Collectors notes: 

These single button chronographs — housing the 12.68Z — came in a variety of metals including gold plated, solid gold and stainless steel cases. There’s also a large range in sizes of case from the small 33mm (like the example shown here) to much larger 40mm stainless steel versions. The later are considered rarer and are considerably more valuable by collectors.
