While “correctness” starts with the dial, it doesn’t end there. As collecting has become more popular, paying attention to all the other components of the watch is essential. No particular aspect of these components should trump the rest or be completely discounted. While a ‘new old stock’ example would be great, these were used as tool watches — some wear and tear, and even some service parts (hands, crystal, bracelet), are understandable and shouldn’t necessarily mean it’s a terrible example as long as those changes are reflected in the cost.

The case page covers the case dimensions, case back, crown, and crystal. Please use the drop down menu for this and the other parts.
