Condition Report

Condition Report:
Presented in overall good vintage condition. The dial remains in good condition however does have some spotting. The lume plots have also discoloured as is often the way with these. The case remains in good overall shape but there are the odd scratch and ding as would be expected given its age. The movement has just returned from service. Finally the watch is fitted with a Jubilee bracelet reference 6251 H. This remains in fair condition showing signs of stretching as is often the way with this era of bracelet - it is however perfectly wearable.
