    This watch is an exceptional example of the Ref: 3371, and still retains its original dial. The case is in fantastic condition, having only been lightly polished in its nearly 80 year life, and retains its original crown. The coronet engraving is still clear and visible on the caseback, as are the reference number and case number.
