FS: Omega Ranchero 2990-1 from 1959

Dear Collectors,
I have for sale a beautiful and rare Omega Ranchero 2990-1 from 28 January 1959. It was delivered to Italy.
The conditions are stunning for its age.
The case of 36mm was polished a little in the past and is still sharp.
The caseback maybe was never polished. The writing "WATERPROOF" on the caseback is deep.
The dial is perfect. All the radium indexes are intact and have a beautiful pumpkin ( I prefer to say polenta :) ) patina. It's free of scratches or signs. It has the writing "SWISS MADE" at 6 o'clock.
It's full radium. Please find a photo with the geiger counter and under the UV lamp. Without the plexy I reached 4,9 microsv of radiation.
The hands lost their radium in the past and were professionally restored. They glow under UV.
The movement was serviced last year and it's running strong.
The crown is an old service one.
The plexy is free of scratches.
It comes with a vintage and rare box Omega. I don't know is it was from this reference.
It comes also with extract from archives and a brand new italian leather strap.
Worldwide shipping to be discussed.
I'm located in Italy near Milan.
€ 4900,00
Paypal friends, bank wire or F2F accepted.
I have references here and on other forums.
