|Style||Fifty Fathoms Milspec 1|
Case & Bracelet
Excellent case that shows light wear from use. The bakelite bezel is in good condition with a crack at 3 and 11 o’clock.
New tan NATO strap.
Very good glossy black dial that shows some light hand rub between the 9 o’clock marker and the center post. There is also a light scratch the runs from the center post to between the 1 and 2 o’clock markers. The lume has turned a warm sandy hue. The rare Tornek hands have aged slightly lighter than the dial. All lume glows brightly when exposed to UV and falls off rapidly at the same rate.
The watch is running at COSC spec.
