Up for grabs is this Navitimer from 1958. It was a one owner watch before I purchased it in 2015.
Case: 40mm Stainless Steel case has never been polished and shows very little signs of wear at all.
Dial: Original Radium dial retains all of its original lume. It is still very glossy. Applied Gold AOPA exclusive logo.
Movement: The Venus 178 was serviced in 2015 and is running well. Chronograph runs/starts/stops as it should. When the chronograph is started the minute counter jumps forward one minute.
Hands: Hands are original. It appears that some lume was applied on top of the original lume on the hour hand (please see photos.) Since this was done a long time ago and since this watch was a one owner piece, I have decided to leave it as is.
Serial: 910xxx serial dates the watch to 1958.
Crown: Original B signed crown
Price: $9750 or nearest offer.
Shipping: FedEx with Parcel Pro
The watch is located in the USA.
