Overall, the watch is in very good condition. The original dial is flawless, featuring luminous plots with matching radium alpha hands. It has assumed an amazing caramel color patina, homogeneously, without any flaws. The case appears to be polished once, preserving the original cut of it with thick lugs, in overall good condition. Date and weekday switch smoothly without any issues at exactly 12 o’clock. The watch was just serviced, keeping very accurate time (+5s/d) with an amplitude of over 280°. We acquired this watch from a gentleman in the US. An absolutely unique piece.
