    I think this one is a "collectors watch" given it's overall condition. My pics tend to exaggerate flaws as I would prefer you be pleasantly (as opposed to unpleasantly) surprised upon receipt.

    Dial is flawless when viewed under loupe. Any tiny dots or marks are on crystal. Lume on dial and hands is overall excellent with no evidence of flaking, cracking or any "man-made" intervention. I just realized that there is some adhesive goop on the crystal at 12:00 marker in the first picture. Sorry about that..please look at the second pic for clean dial shot..

    Hands are good with no kinks or other signs of intervention. Some oxidation best seen under loupe and mostly apparent on the seconds hand.

    Case is superb overall, and prior to my purchase may have had a sympathetic polish as I see some softening at the lug tips under loupe. I cannot tell for sure without another case for comparison. But the contours are certainly intact and sharp. Scratch at bottom of 11:00 lug is superficial and not a gouge or ding.

    Case back is on tight and my "rubber ball thingie" will not budge it. So sorry for the absence of movement pics, but I ain't gonna risk scratching this one up with my adjustable back wrench..

    Seems to be keeping decent time and date snaps smartly into place at 12:00. But please assume it needs a service as I have no idea of when this was last performed.

    Comes with it's original JB Champion bracelet that is also in excellent condition but would benefit from an ultrasonic bath. The custom made sharkskin strap, a fond remembrance of my "matchy-matchy" phase a number of years ago, will also be included.

    Given it's condition, original bracelet and overall presentation, I think this one is well priced at $1700/ONRO.

    pp f+f or bank wire

    Fedex/Parcel pro to continental U.S. is on me. Overseas will split shipping with the buyer.

    And as always, please don't hesitate to contact me for questions or more photos.
