Up for sale this weekend is this super early Carrera, it's got that hard-to-find untouched vintage finish with a few blemishes that only serve to enhance its lovely vintage character. I hope the images show all this OK, unpolished case, great dial, original hands and original movement all in working order. Ask me any questions you like via my email.
Thanks for your attention.
