I described this watch as 100% All Original though its leather strips are new. Leather deteriorates over time, it is bound to be replaced & is not considered a permanent part of any timepiece. In the case of vintage watches, replacing with new leather is sometimes necessary to restore its beauty & purpose.
  1. Notes on the CRYSTAL: light scratches on surface
  2. Notes on the CASE: light indentation near crown
  3. Notes on the BRACELET: links are welded or joined together along the middle, but some pairs of links are detached
  4. Notes on the GOLD-PLATING: coverage of gold-plating has darkened or partially faded along edges
