Overall, the watch is in near mint condition. The dial, especially the glossy black part but also the white guilloched subdials as well as outer scale are flawless. Both dial and hands retain original tritium lume. The watch is presumably unpolished with clean and sharp chamfers. The bezel moves smoothly with a good tension. Even the crystal is original to the watch, not a thin plexi replacement. The watch was just by our watchmaker, thus in very good running condition, keeping accurate time; 315°; +6s/d. The watch comes from a collector in the United States. This watch comes from our private collection.
I’m always on the hunt for a very nice 806, as this was my very first vintage watch and I just like it. If you are too – this is what you are looking for! Promise!
