Other: This rare 1950s manual-winding GP is absolutely gorgeous with its creamy "eggshell" dial and vibrant yellow lume. We love the unique hour markers! The 35mm stainless steel screw-back case slides nicely under a cuff and sits comfortably on the wrist. If you're looking for a versatile and interesting conversation piece with a workhorse manual-winding movement, this is it! Once this one is gone, you won't find another one exactly like it...
