The unpolished case displays its original factory dimensions and finishing with light, honest signs of use. The smooth stainless steel bezel is unpolished as well and shows minimal signs of use. The watch will come supplied on a 2pc handmade leather strap.


The originally grey dial has aged to a gorgeous tropical brown coloration that is even throughout. The dial itself is in exceptional condition. The tritium lume plots have taken on a yellow patina, under U.V. light inspection the 2 o'clock marker shows a very small amount of lume loss, the rest of the lume plots remain fully intact and round. The original tritium hands match the dial perfectly and exhibit no degradation under U.V. light inspection.


None. The watch is recently serviced and is keeping time perfectly, back by a 1-year warranty or accurate timekeeping.
