Description

The condition of the watch is used but feels nevertheless very correct for this type of watch.

The two-tone bullseye metal dial shows some minor scratches. Switzerland signed in the bottom with all lines clearly visible.

Great FB case with screw-down back. Deep stamped reference number between the lugs making the case even more attractive. Thin but strong angular lugs.

The aesthetically well designed movement with bright red rubies runs smoothly. The movement is protected by the original ‘Faraday Cage’ to protect its movement from magnetic fields (visit ‘taking care of your watch’ story on this platform to learn more about magnetic fields and vintage watches).

The bonklip style bracelet is aftermarket.
