Can anyone tell me whether it is normal for vintage Navitimer 806 from the 1960s to be without the “WOG” stamp on the Venus 178 movement?
Seems like most have the stamp but some can also be without the stamp?
Thanks everyone!

Would it be true to say that the ones with the WOG stamp were exported to the US while ones without the stamp were likely sold somewhere not the USA?

WOG is the code for Breitling + Wakmann watches exported to USA. For example a Lip-Breitling has no export code but a France engraving on the balance cock.
