Beautifully aged Original JLC factory vintage dial.
The Dial is in a condition, that is highly sought after by collector's, unmolested and unrestored this fantastic Original factory Dial has Tropicalised over the years into a wonderful warm colour. There are a few minor marks to the dial but nothing offensive at all.
Nice classic style dial with dagger indices, no numbers on this Dial, which is quite quirky.
This is the original Untouched Vintage Dial and what a superb one at that.
THIS IS NOT A REDIAL!!!!
Top Quality all Stainless Steel Case with Bombe lugs.
The very well proportioned 33.5mm case, solid bezel and this case wears beautifully and somewhat larger beyond its 33.5mm measurement on the Wrist.
It displays a real presence and its fair to call this one a head turner.
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 ,almost, 70 year old timepiece.
Case approx. measures in at:
Diameter with Crown: 35.3mm
End of lug to lug: 41.9mm
Lug Spacing: 18mm
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 good order, some slight age related patina to the hands.
Crystal has been lightly polished part of the Service.
I am unsure around the Crowns originality, it is unsigned and in good order.
On a new 16mm Brismassi Esetti tan brown leather strap with signed steel buckle that compliments the Watch beautifully.
Comes with a free GungaDin Watch Box as pictured.
