    Condition: This timepiece is presented in good condition. The case shows obvious signs of wear in the form of scratches and indentations on case sides and lugs as well as caseback. However, the original contour of the lug facets and case are very strong and present honestly. The original dial shows wear and ageing, particular on the silver subsidiary dials. Luminous material is still present on each of the baton hour markers. Hands show signs of oxidation and corrosion. One of the three original bezels is completely intact on the watch. Service is recommended for daily use and timekeeping accuracy
