The present lot is offered in very good overall condition. The dial, hands, and bezel are in excellent condition and appear to be original. The dial is crisp without hairlines. The case is in very good condition with very light scratches and scuffs. The strap is CITES regulated, and while it is mostly in very good condition, the portion between the back of the lower left lug is peeling . The functions are working at the time of cataloguing. The movement is in working order at the time of cataloging, consistent with the age of the watch. The movement has not been tested for accuracy. A service is recommended given the age of the watch.
