Hi guys,

sorry but this is not a watch I would buy...

The movement is in terrible condition. Not only extremely dirty but scratched bridges, rusty screws (a clear sign of humility in the watch) and, as far as I can see, one coloum of the chrono steering wheel is missing. The chrono centerwheel is not adjusted in the right way, so it s scratching at the chrono bridge. The movement loooks like treated by a tractor mechanic.

Furthermore you should replace the dial and the main hands. The case is far from "mint" but perhaps with some hours of work it could be restored. The crown should be signed anyway.

All in all I would wait for a better one.
