The movement is in working condition at the time of cataloguing. All functions are working properly. The dial is in very nice and original condition. The case is in very nice condition with light surface wear that is consistent with the age of the watch. There is very minor signs of opening under the bezel above the lug at 11 o'clock. The case with sharp lines and with still very readable and crisp inscriptions on the case back. There is some light wear to the feet of the lugs. Overall an exceptional example.
