HANDS Original


Prone to wear, this particular example is in near mint condition. Showing some patina to the side of the case from not being worn, the bezel is as sharp as when it came out of the factory, the dial in excellent condition with a wonderful beige patina to the indexes and the movement is in almost new condition with no service marks inside the caseback. A beautiful example of the Cosmonaute.
