Overall, the watch is in excellent condition. The original dial is in outstanding condition showing a stunning tropical patina. Both dial and hands retain original radium luminous mass. The watch case is in very good condition, most likely unpolished, with only superficial scratches. The chronograph starts, stops and resets without any issues. The watch was just serviced by our watchmaker, thus in excellent running condition, keeping accurate time. It is now running with an amplitude over 320° and a +7s/d time deviation. The watch was acquired from a collector in Switzerland.
Needless to say, but this watch is pretty unique. A rare and interesting calibre as well as the amazing dial patina make this one of a kind!
