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 numerals of the dial, which is a common sight among these superrare watches. The dial shows a nice, patina. This is the earlier and much rarer gilt dial version of this reference. The watch case appears to be unpolished. The bakelite bezel is in excellent condition. The recently serviced watch is in very good running condition, keeping accurate time (310; +4). A superrare military watch.
