Awesome Untouched Vintage Panda Dial.
A vertical bicompax layout and compact day and date mechanism (with the day wheel in two languages, here English and Arabic) offer a unique look to start. But the dial also has a wonderful subtle, almost linen-texture that offers a lot of depth, especially with the polished applied markers and logo. Add a black internal tachymeter bezel and a pair of black syringe hands and you've got one of the best looking watches to come out in the 70s and one of the best to ever come out of Japan.
