Running and a beautiful movement overall.

Winding wheels have some small bits of oxide and small fine scratches. Dial is beautiful with just two very faint outer chapter hairlines at 11 O'clock.Case is excellent with very strong engine turning and engraving detail and case has scattered small contact nicks to its band.
