Overall, the watch is in very good condition. The originally black, gilt dial has assumed an absolutely stunning, homogenous tropical brown patina. Both, dial and hands show original tritium luminous. The watch case is absolutely unpolished and retains its characteristic lyre lug cut. The watch was recently serviced by our watchmaker, keeping very accurate time. It is running with a high amplitude of over 285° and +2s/d time deviation. The watch was acquired from a collector in Sicily. It is very hard to come by an example like this, with both perfect tropical dial as well as unpolished case.
The watch now has the original UG signed crystal with correct cyclop date window.
