    Condition: This timepiece is presented in very good preserved condition. The case is in very good condition, with no signs of heavy wear. Very defined case shape, and thick lugs. Caseback engravings are deep and sharp, and has some light wear on the knurling. The two tone salmon dial is in very good condition with some ageing, but all lume intact for batons and Arabic numbers. Minute hand is missing luminous material toward the tip. The movement runs for a few seconds and sets, but service will be needed as this timepiece has been sitting with the same owner unused for over 40 years.
