The original "OCC" dial predates the more commonly seen "SCOC" dials of the 1960s and is in impressively well-preserved condition for its age. The silver dial features concentric brushing which is only characteristic of 1950s dials and offers a unique of-the-era aesthetic that is downright beautiful. The dial does exhibit some gentle aging which is expected, however, the aging is tasteful and enhances the vintage appearance and warmth of the watch overall.
