An interesting eBay listing that to my eyes looks pretty original and largely unmolested, and honestly described by the seller. The dial and hands are heavily aged. Price seems high to me for the level of wear, but I am constantly being surprised these days by the prices vintage pieces are achieving.

I am very curious about how dial can look like this! I was expecting to see water damage in the movment, but movement looks clean!

Yeah, weird, the case and bezel look decent. It was supposed to be waterproof, maybe some water got in when it was lying upside down just enough to submerge the the hands and the dial but not the movement? Even then water would have evaporated and caused oxidisation of the movement imo. A mystery....

On closer inspection of the Ebay listing, rest if the watch shows some serious issues as well.

The listing says pusher shaft replaced, pusher cap worn down. There seems to be some pitting of the case at the underside of one if the lugs. There is rust oxidisation, something turned brown, visible between the dial and the case from 4 o clock to 6 o clock. Some serious scratches on the case and case back, from a poor case back opening attempt? Both pusher stems corroded or dirty. Some dings and dirt or corrosion on the lugs.
