Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. The glossy gilt dial has assumed a beautiful tropical patina. The luminous has aged to an amber colour. The watch case appears to be unpolished, very sharp. The recently serviced watch is in excellent working order, running strong and keeping accurate time (270°; +10s/d). The example at hand is in pristine, collectors grade, condition.
This is the extremely rare steel version of this reference. Usually, it was only issued to officers of the French Navy and Air Force in very low production numbers. The present example is not issued, unmarked.
