附帶證書

The movement is in working condition at the time of cataloguing. All functions are working properly. The dial is in very well preserved condition. The luminous material on the dial gives a very strong reading on the Geiger counter. There are some minor spotting and some very minor discolouration to the rim of the date subsidiary dial. The hands appear to been stationary and not moving for a very long time as there is a yellow patch of discolouration by the luminous in the hands that falls through the 'Philippe' and 'Geneve' in the signature. The case is very well preserved with very good fluting to the lugs, sharp hallmarks to the outer lug at 10 o'clock and between the bottom pusher and the lug at 5 o'clock. The case with only light surface wear which is only consistent with the age of the watch. The case back with monogram which reads F.M.VE. The crown has been upgraded during a servicing. Overall in extremely well preserved condition and still retaining its original certificate.


Please note that the movement has not been tested for the accuracy of time and may need a service at the buyer's expense.
