HANDS Original


Dial, case, and movement signed. DIAM. 34 mm. THICKNESS 13 mm. Property of the original owner Consigned by the son of the original owner, the watch has stayed in great condition and the dial with the bright red word officially in red has turned to a nice even beautiful light beige color. More amazingly the watch stayed in the safe at ten past ten, creating a light radium burn on the dial at that exact position. A great 6084 with character.
