Panda dial in excellent condition - this is indeed a rare grey dial, which presents itself as anything from black through silver to grey depending on the light - the array of tones illustrated in the images are testament to this true chameleon 

Lume plots and hands aged evenly to an attractive pumpkin, some ageing to the white hands itself; the sub dials appear clean and free of marks

Case displays some wear from age, but does not appear to have been polished or messed around with - overall it remains sharp

Currently running strong, chronograph function starts, stops and resets tested to 5 minutes - movement regulated - full service history however is unknown 

Includes box, and extract of the archive stating Delivery to United Kingdom February 9, 1973
