The movement is in working condition at the time of cataloguing. All functions are working properly. The dial is in very nice condition with hard enamel scales nicely raised. The overall dial has started to age a warm ivory. There is a very minor spot below the centre post in the subsidiary register. There is some very minor spotting to the left of the Swiss signature but this is very minor. The hallmark is not very visible but the way it is stamped and the visibility is similar to other 3rd series known from the same period, for example the pink gold 3rd series. The case has been retained in very nice condition with strong fluting to the lugs and a hallmark between the lugs at 6 o'clock. There is minor surface wear to the case back.


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