Condition

The movement is running, however we recommend service soon. The dial is in nice condition. The case shows genera wear with light surface scuffs throughout. The screws to the back of the case appear to not be original from the factory, however they are the right size and rather insignificant. The length of the watch printed in the catalouge (56mm) includes the lugs.
