Gorgeous perfectly patinated vintage all original Cyma Dial.
The Dial is in a condition, that is,really, of beauty. It has aged fantastically and developed a wonderful patina, that just can not be replicated.
I just love it!
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial and what a superb one at that.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Case & Bezel
Top Quality all Stainless Steel Case. Unusual to see from a period where the use of Chrome was rife.
The Case is in fantastic condition for its age with no real marks to write home about at all bar a few age related scratches, which are barely worth mentioning, in this circa 70 year old timepiece.
Most importantly, the case has never been polished, the case edges are still sharp.
Marked nicely to the caseback.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 35.3mm
End of lug to lug: 40.4mm
Lug Spacing: 16mm
This Case was rated Water resistant back in the Day, it is now a Vintage Timepiece, it has NOT been tested for Water Resistance and if you wish to Submerge this Watch, you will need to have the Watch Professionally Resealed before doing so!!
Hands, Crystal and Crown
Original Hands are in very good order, some slight age related patina to the minute hand.
New crystal has been fitted as part of the Service.
When the Watch came to us, the Crown was very worn, so a new Crown has been fitted, which looks fantastic.
On a NOS Swiss Made 16mm Vintage light Brown Leather Strap, which I have kept hold of for a while now, waiting for the perfect Watch to pair it with.
It has a Gold Plated buckle which is Original and has developed some patina in storage.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
