The dial is in excellent, original condition. There is no wear to writing. There are no areas of damage to the enamel. This is a very good dial for the age.
Excellent condition Cathedral hands with no rust. Thermally blued.
The crystal is in good condition with only some very light surface scratches.
The crown is likely a replacement as the colour doesn't match. In good condition, with some surface scratches.
The case is in excellent condition with only light surface scratches that are consistent with age. This remains original and un-polished.
Strong condition with multiple light surface scratches. Nice coin edge back.
NOTE: The thread on the screw back needs to be on correctly and carefully to tighten equally all over.
The lugs are thin silver and are deformed due to age. This can be corrected. It doesn't notice with a strap on.
Keeping time to within -120 seconds a day with an amplitude of 200 degrees. The beat error is 9.9m/s.
It keeps good time during wear and sat on a desk but ideally needs a service.
