Very good working order, chronograph functions working, sweep seconds hand for chronograph gets to around 57 seconds before stopping and needs resetting, dial is slightly discoloured all over but no damage, glass in good condition, bezel has one very small dent between 11 and 12, case very lightly surface scratched all over with some deeper scratches on caseback from attempted openings, on unassociated strap, crown working, hands adjust smoothly, no box or papers

 

All lumed hour markers are present, but are very small. All are luminous under the light but hands fade at a slightly lower rate possibly due to the fact that the lumed hands are larger and retain more light after the source is turned off.
