Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. Dial and tritium luminous appear to be almost flawless. The watch appears to be unpolished, very sharp. The alarm function works properly. The watch was just serviced by our watchmaker, running strong, showing a high amplitude, keeping accurate time (275°, +8s/d). The watch was acquired from a collector in Italy. The watch shows a engraving on the caseback: TO OUR PRESIDENT PETER G KELLER FOR SERVICES RENDERED TO FSDA 1959-1961. (President of the philatelic association at that time in the US) The watch comes as a full set with its original box, papers?? And hangtag. It will be hard to find another E855 in this outstanding condition and set.
