The dial has acquainted a very attractive and subtle beige patina

The steel case is fully marked and stamped with all corrects patent numbers and logo’s.
Stunning design case with unmistakable influences from the Art-Deco period wears incredibly smooth around the wrist.
As seen on the pictures, there’s some wear in between the case back side and the closure clasp.

The Caliber 19.4 T2 movement is clean and runs well.

The overall condition of this watch is superb. The watch remains in a complete original condition with the exception of the crystals.
Normal wear such as light scratches, nothing unusual after 80+ years.
