  1. Notes on the WATCH: We acquired this item in a box together with other watches. They seem to have been somebody's halted customization or restoration project because they were disassembled. The dials, hands, crown, movements & cases were taken apart. Parts were jumbled, but they were all there. It was a matter of putting the correct parts together & this is the result!
  2. Notes on the DIAL: The green enamel finish of the twin-seahorse emblem has faded, some painted white letters have slightly faded, paint bubble below G of "Green Horse"

The photos presented are of the actual item for sale. Kindly study them carefully because what you see is what you will get. We try our best to describe watches as accurately as we can that's why we present them visually & literally. In case we missed a few points, you are welcome to ask questions.

This watch keeps good time, looks great & is in good working condition! Add this to your collection of vintage quality timepieces!
