Looks ok to me, would have expected the movement to be unsigned on a pre-1944 but rest seems good, do not have Richter with me but if I remember correctly 790 is a waterproof midsize. Maybe Roff will chime in soon as this listing is ending.

Not absolutely convinced about the crown, rest looks OK. Bridge engraving is later in my opinion.

Looked at it again on a slightly larger screen now, actually like it a lot; dial, hands and case are in quite nice condition.

Thanks for the input. I saw one similar to this in France and couldn't verify its authenticity, when I saw this one I got very excited.

So, only excited or did you buy it ?

If you did, it would be nice if you could post some good pics of it when you receive it, rare piece.
