Auto-Takumar 35mm f2.3

I will receive this lens shortly. I would like to get a UV / Skylight filter for it. I have seen two different filter sizes referenced for this lens (62 and 65 mm).
I would like to get a filter that uses the lens filter threads to screw in and then use a screw in type lens hood that screws into the new filter.

Can anyone confirm the proper threaded filter diameter to use for this lens?

Filter thread is 62mm. The front lens is curved so I recommend using a step-up ring of brass with the filter. 62 / 62 for APS-C, 62 / 67 for film. Use a good hood.
It's a bit prone to flare, but IQ is excellent.
