Case & Bracelet
Purchased from the original owner, retired USMC Pilot Lt.Col Mark K. and is in excellent condition. The case is thick and shows wear from use it still has the original bevels, with “sleeve polish” on the lugs that happens naturally over time. The original fat font “kissing 40” insert is in excellent condition and has faded to an even grey hue.
The “C and I” USA rivet Oyster bracelet has some wear from use, 11 links and a “1-73” date stamp.
Excellent 4 line Tritium matte black dial. The lume has turned an even yellow hue and has original matching hands. Some of the lume has thinned down on the 10 and 9 o’clock marker but still intact.
Photo Set of the Original Owner.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
