FS: Omega Ranchero 2990-1 white "panna" dial

I'm refocusing my collection on other vintage sport watches.
I think I bought so much Rancheros :)
Only two left and the following one is for sale.
This is a white dial "panna" Ranchero.
The reference is 2990-1. It was produced on October 17, 1958 and delivered to Italy according to the extract.
It is in honest and nice conditions for his age. I bought it for his warm patina on the dial.
The dial is free of scratches. It has a small spot near the center. You can see it from the pictures. The radium on the indexes is full and with a orange-brown color. The radium of the hands matches the color of the indexes. It is missing a small radium part in the minute hand. The hands show the typical oxidation on the metal seen in some examples.
You can perfectly see the SWISS MADE writing under the 6 o' clock.
The plexyglass is the original one with the old Omega logo at the center. It has a sign near 12 hours. It's a small crack but it is under the edge so not clearly visible when wearing the watch.
The crown is an old service one.
The case has been polished in the past. You can perfectly see the writing on the caseback : WATERPROOF.
The movement is clean as you can see. It was serviced 2 years ago more or less. It's keeping good time.
The watch comes with the extract of archives and a new Morellato strap as seen in pics.
Included in the price: express courier for Europe with full insurance. Outside EU shipping must be discuted.
€ 4400 by bank transfer or paypal friends.
The watch is located near Milan, Italy.
I have references here and on other forums.
