    Condition: This timepiece is presented in very good condition. The case is in very good condition, with light signs of wear on case sides and case back in the form of scratches and indentations. Case shows its original strong case lines on lugs. Case back logo is sharp and engravings are deep. Interesting personalization on back indicating: “015 , 26.2.77” which has a “issued” aesthetic to it, but we were unable to discover anything in our research. Very rare bezel insert is still present, with signs of wear in the form of scratches and indentations though out. The dial is in very good condition with little signs of wear, and all lume intact. Hands are in very good condition, however hour and minute hand are missing its luminous material. Movement runs and sets as it should. Service is recommended for daily use and timekeeping accuracy
