Features: Stunning original silver sunburst dial with gold-tone hour markers and art-deco numerals; original luminous hands; original "red arrow" center sweeping-seconds hand; date display at 3 o'clock; manual-winding movement; unique case shape; domed acrylic crystal

Condition: Fantastic original condition overall with only minor signs of wear consistent with age and very light use; gold-plated case is completely unpolished with sharp edges and bevels; crisp stainless steel caseback is defined and clearly legible; gorgeous original silver sunburst dial with all lume plots in tact and aged to an attractive yellow hue; original hands with all luminous material in tact and matching; original "red arrow" center sweeping-seconds hand

Other: It's amazing how the simple red-arrow tip of a sweeping-seconds hand can be the focal point on a watch. The subtle pop of red color matches the retro Waltham logo perfectly. We also love the gold-tone hour markers and art-deco numerals on the silver sunburst dial. It's hard to beat this super cool conversation piece with a unique case and dial in mint condition for under $400.
