I am pleased to report that the overall condition of this piece is excellent; it appears to have undergone a cosmetic and mechanical restoration, which has left the watch with original factory finishes on the case, crown, bracelet and case-back. The dial would appear to have been restored to [in my opinion] a very high level of detail. There are some hairline scratches on the bracelet and clasp commensurate with occasional use.
The movement of this piece is currently functioning as per manufacturer's specification (winding, setting and running) and keeping excellent time as of 13/09/19, however we do not guarantee the movements of any watches that are sold.
