The steel case is in exceptionally good overall condition for its age, with only modest wear in places. The dial is in good overall condittion and has aged to a bright ivory colour. There are a couple of small marks. The logo and minute marks are all crisp. The early version curved profile hands are in good order with a touch of wear. The original glass shows very minor wear commensurate with its age.
