    I found this 1969 pre-moon today and immediately fell in love with its patina ! The watch looks untouched, I think everything is original except the bracelet. The lugs are still very thick.

    great looking piece. patina is the desirable yellow shade. i've seen a lot of these with a darker/greenish shade; usually from moisture.
