This U-series from 1997/8 appears fully authentic in all parts just like it left the factory in the nineties. It shows some signs of wearing like a more or less scratched bracelet or a ding in the bezel between 90 and 100. The case, with clearly readable numbers between the lugs, is still very fat and in a nice shape. You will find all casebackengravings you wanted to see as well. The most beautiful thing about this watch are the subdials which allready have started to fade into an overwhealming nice vanillatone. The condition of the dial as well as the handset are 100% and for sure the original tritiumlume is still appearing on them.
