Overall, the watch is in very good condition. Certainly one of the best examples out there! The blac dial is in perfect condition, showing an extremely homogeneous and beautiful patina. The dial retains original radium that has aged to a very appealing pumpkin colour. The hands were custom made for this watch, great craftsmanship, just like the original ones and filled with radium. (Its very common for this reference to have corroded and partly destroyed hands, this is a logical step to replace them, done very professionally). The watch is unpolished with clean and sharp chamfers. The watch was just serviced, running with a very high amplitude, keeping very accurate time (300°; +10s/d). Extremely beautiful, very nice on the wrist and in absolutely investment grade condition.
