The plastic crystal is brand new and as such is in excellent condition. I have fitted a BRAND NEW black genuine leather 20mm band to this lovely wristwatch.

Please remember that vintage watches have survived for many decades by being treated well.
Vintage watches are not for wearing while doing yard work, working out, or swimming. Vintage watches cannot keep time like their quartz cousins and will need altering on average between +-2 to +-5 mins per day.They are a little more destructible than modern watches. Vintage watches also require periodic service and cleaning. Every couple of years, they would like their 20,000 mile checkup, oil change, and general service. By taking care of your vintage watch, you will have years of great service, and a quality heirloom to pass to another generation. Please do not waste anyones time if you are not interested.
