    Condition: The condition of this watch is exceptional. It shows NO signs of being polished at all and very minimal wear for its age. The bracelet is tight and the clasp is also tight in opening. The bezel on this particular model is prone to flaking, this one is almost immaculate. It is running fine but will be serviced before sale and will come with 12 months warranty.

     

    The box: There is a common consensus that it only came with a steel Mooncrater box. I have found multiple watches of the same reference all sold to Japan with the same box, all with the edition number in the low 500's. These can be found by simply serchign the net. I firmly believe that this box as well as the others that were sent to Japan, were sent with the same box as this one instead of the Mooncrater box.

     

    Its hard to come across one of these in this condition let alone one with the documents. It also has an extract of archives dating it to December 23rd 1969 and was supplied to Japan.
