Condition: Very nice original condition overall with minor honest wear consistent with age and use; razor-sharp stainless steel case appears to be completely unpolished with the original finishes throughout; crisp screw-down caseback with the reference number clearly visible; beautiful original dial has aged to an eggshell/off-white hue over time with all luminous material in tact; original hands with all luminous material in tact and aged to a matching yellow hue; clean domed acrylic crystal

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...
