FS: Vintage Certina DS-1 Automatic Turtleback

For sale is this Certina DS-1 Automatic cal. 25-651.

Unpolished steel case, 36.5mm excluding crown (those DS-1 came in 2 slightly different cases, this one is the larger one), really great to wear.

Original domed thick plexy crystal, which are hard to come by.

The minute hand was slightly loose on the cannon pinion, so my watchmaker changed it with a replacement one (the lume on it is partially missing), very similar but not identical to the original.
I will include the original one.

Original dial with vertical brushing and an even patina (i tried to photograph the watch under different light conditions).

The movement was checked and oiled (not a full service), it runs great, keeping good time.

My price is 280Euro, paypal or bankwire. EU deal preferred.

I'm located in Italy, many references on request.

Thanks for looking!
