Need some help identifying this Titanium watch I got recently used as genuine or not. Ive opened it, and it looks good to me, but I am not an expert. It appears to be a PAM176, but it has a closed back (all the info ive found says they have the exibition back), and the date mark I see on the back is a "D" which I understand would date it before the PAM176 was made. If anyone coud share thier knolege and shed some light, that would be very much appriciated. Here are photos:

First of all, welcome :)

What you appear to have is a PAM 55, you can see it in the models list and millesimation list. The 55 pre-dates the 176 and is nicer by virtue of a brown dial over black. As you've exposed, it uses the earlier version of the Unitas 6497 movement but the highly decorated one all the same.

Nice watch.

Thank you so much. I traded it from a friend for something valuble. Knowing him, I was sure he wouldent screw me, but without box and papers, its hard to be sure, especially with all the fakes floating around. You made my day. Thank you!
