The excellent thick case that has some patina from use but remains in unpolished condition. The original bezel insert has taken on wonderful and deep charcoal fade. This specific example bears the rare commemorative straight writing "moon watch" case back (145.022-69 inside) which was produced from 1970 to 1973. The case back writing is deep and very clear although the majority of the paint has disappeared from being worn but it is in original as found condition. The watch will be supplied on a handmade vintage style leather strap.


The original step dial is in incredible and original condition. The original tritium lume and hands have taken on a wonderful golden yellow patina.
