This particular watch has a 17-jewel Unitas 632, so called Wehrmachtswerk (army movement), which is working nicely.
The watch measures 33.5mm diameter excluding the winding crown and the lugs. The case is 9 carat gold and there are hallmarks inside the case back for London 1973. The case is in good condition with just the odd minor mark. The case back has a long service inscription, and a slight indentation.
The signed dial is in good original condition with original hands, a subsidiary seconds dial and outer minute markers.
A new leather strap has been fitted.
The watch will be sent in a new leather box.
