The movement is in a mint condition chrome plated case with an original crown and stainless back, still with the original protective sticker. The mint crystal has the iconic thermometer attached to the center which appears to be in working order but without further guarantee. (Please note that this watch was not tested to be waterproof either, although it most likely still is).
The dial of this watch is an original factory made black dial in mint condition, exceptional in every standard with an original set of hands.
