Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. Dial and hands show an appealing crazed patina. The case appears to be unpolished. This black dial version almost never comes up for sale and poses the chance to acquire a real masterpiece from the 40s. The patina of this gilt dial chronograph is absolutely unique and stunning. The stainless steel step watch case is absolutely unpolished, in excellent condition, super sharp! The watch was just serviced by our watchmaker, remaining in excellent running condition, keeping accurate time. (300°+ 5s/d). The watch was acquired from a gentleman and friend in Italy. The watch represents one of the peaks of 1940s chronograph collecting. The execution is of the highest possible quality. The patina is one of the best I have ever seen on any 1940s chronograph. Rare, investment grade, important!
