Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. Dial and hands appear to be in excellent condition, showing original tritium. The watch case is unpolished, very sharp. The bezel is in excellent, almost flawless condition, rare for this watch. More often than not these watches are in pretty bad condition. This condition on this ‘Captain Cook’ is pretty remarkable. The recently serviced watch (275°; +5s/d) is in very good running condition, keeping very accurate time. The watch was acquired from a collector in Germany.
