    Personally, the dial doesn't speak to me. It looks like someone touched it permanently with dirty fingers.
    The movement's condition corresponds to the dial's one. A service is inevitable (-> add a few hundred bucks). No watchmaker signs in the caseback means that it hasn't been serviced at all. Look at the rust on some parts and the verdigris.

    Apart from that, I don't like that the numbers on the caseback are made invisible. I always wonder if those sellers want to hide something.

    I'd be very interested to hear what you folks think of this watch, which I've seen online for some time now. I am not looking to buy it, am simply curious about it. From a lay person's and non-chronograph collector's perspective, I do find the design itself rather fetching.

    It is a Cal. 385 movement and is described as dating to 1936. It's reference is 5175 and serial is 769002.

    I consulted the Sala book, but could not find the exact reference or approximate serial number. Admittedly, this could be hasty/ sloppy on-the-go research on my part.

    What do you think of the overall condition of the dial? Would you say it is no more or less better/worse than, say, about 70% of the available stock? Do you reckon the markers/indices have been repainted? What do you make of the logo, which appears to be a different colour from the rest of the paint? Do you think the crown is a replacement? Is an asking price of 3,890 euro par for the course for this kind of model in this condition? Is the movement more than ragged?

    Anyhow, you get the gist: I am not fluent at all with this sort of example and am curious as to what you think about it. Thank you in advance for your indulgence.

    Looks kosher to me. Love the oval pushers. Don't see redial warnings here. Perhaps a bit of touch up.
