Once purchased new on 18 August, 1973, one can only assume that the new owner chose in fact not to wear this watch a great deal - the condition is outstanding and safely presumed all original without intervention - the original box and guarantee are testament to this safe and fortuitous assumption - little Blue's caretaker until now has taken the upmost care, here's to the new owner continuing to do so - watches half a century old in this sort of condition are becoming increasingly hard to come by

Flawless rare long index dial, lightly patinated lume plots and hands to match

Immaculate movement, matching caseback stamped second half of 1971 - running strong and keeping excellent time

A timewarp example that is just that little bit different - don't sleep on this one folks
