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

CASE: in fair and attractive condition with sharpness to the lugs and crisp numbers between the lugs. The band and lugs with some wear and signs of polish. The bezel quite faded with scratches and dings throughout. The 'pearl' on the bezel at 12 o'clock shows a strong reaction under UV light and was likely exchanged at some point during a service. The crown is a later replacement. The later-added bracelet with signs of wear and some stretching. The reference is '93150' and the endlinks are stamped '580', the clasp stamped 'G'.

DIAL: in good condition. There are some surface marks visible with the naked eye including a fin dent around the center. The luminous material is even, though likely relumed at some point, and no longer shows any reaction under UV light.
