CONDITION NOTE: Used, but in overall very good physical condition given its age, but is currently not working. The watch lens appear clean and clear with no scratches, chips, streaks, fungus, fog or haze that I can see (see pictures). The watch body appears to be free from nicks, dents, scratches, or other marks from what I can see, but the metal edge where you open the back cover is slightly rough (1/4 inch of it) from opening it over the years (see pictures). The outside edge of the case has some scratches and marks from use. This watch does not come with its original box, any original packaging, instruction manual, or any related documentation. The watch will be carefully packed and insured for safe shipping. See detailed high resolution (zoom-able) pictures to know what you are purchasing.
