CASE & BRACELET

The gold-plated case is in excellent overall condition, displaying minimal signs of previous wear and only gentle signs of polishing, with long lugs that drastically increase the overall size of the watch on wrist. The case retains its original unsigned crown and gold-plated pump pushers. The stainless steel case back is clean with minimal signs of previous use. The watch comes on a 2pc handmade leather strap.

DIAL & HANDS

The original silver dial features blue and red text for the timing scales that add a sophisticated touch of color. The condition of the dial is exceptionally well-preserved, showing no damage and only nominal elements of age. The tritium lume plots have taken on a contrasting dark patina with nominal degradation present in the 4 and 5 o'clock plots when inspected under UV light. The original gold dauphine hands match the dial and exhibit no degradation.
