Uncommon reverse Panda dial in excellent condition 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 - small almost imperceivable mark to the dial just to the right of "Omega" - only visible from certain angles and lighting conditions - please refer to images

Lume plots and hands aged evenly to an attractive warm cream, some ageing to the white hands itself (the minute hand displays evidence of ageing, potentially a small touch up to the paint; the sub dials appear clean and free of marks

Original lume to the hands and dial plots, consistent with age, the hands appear ever so slightly lighter in tone which is expected and normal

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

The watch comes directly from the Grandson of the Original owner, has since undergone a complete service by our trusted watchmaker (June '23) and is in excellent running order
