The other night, I twisted the case for about 8 seconds and it ran without being touched for over three hours. The watch has beautiful patina on the hollow end links and the face and hands.
The Thursday day has some red sort of blemish that can be seen in the photos; the other days are without patina or blemish. As can be seen, the watch has its original acrylic with the cyclops date window. Gorgeous fluted bezel and a very thin case.
I have done my best to photograph the watch, but let me know if you need additional photos. I do not have additional links for the bracelet but it fits my 6.5 wrists as is. This is a lovely vintage piece from a classic brand.
