MVT: is running at the time of cataloguing and the calendar advancing.

CASE: in good condition with strong proportions. There is very light oxidation visible and there are signs of wear visible with the naked eye throughout. This particular model has quite a light shade of pink which may be due to the type of alloy used at the time or simply due to the way the watch has aged.

DIAL: in very good condition with absolutely minute surface blemishes.

The lot is sold in the condition it is in at the time of sale. The online condition report is provided to assist you with assessing the condition of the lot and is for guidance purposes only. The images of the lot also form part of the online condition report for the lot provided by Sotheby's. Any reference to condition in the online condition report does not amount to a full description of condition. The online condition report may make reference to particular imperfections of the lot but you should note that the lot may have other faults not expressly referred to in the online condition report of the lot or shown in the online images of the lot (for example, the online condition report may not specify mechanical replacements or imperfections to the movement, case, dial, pendulum, separate base(s) or dome). Watches in water-resistant cases have been opened to examine movements but no warranties are made that the watches are currently water-resistant.
