Lume is not particularly attractive, but looks original, and the slide rule is stained, probably from moisture at some point. Apart from that, the watch looks pretty good and original.

It’s a reasonably worn example, but they’re not too many of these kicking about these days. In addition to Harry’s comments, the subdial hand on the left (continuous seconds) isn’t original, but hardly a deal breaker. The crystal needs to be changed too, but an easy thing to do.
