Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. Dial and hands are in very nice condition. Both retain their original radium luminous mass, responding to the geiger counter. The radium has partly ‘died’ on the lower numerals of the dial. The dial shows a nice, homogenous patina. This is the earlier and much rarer gilt dial version of this reference. The watch case appears to be unpolished. The bezel is in excellent condition. The recently serviced watch is in very good running condition, keeping accurate time (290°; +4). Naturtally, it comes from a chronograph collector in Italy. A superrare military watch.
