Now that's what we call patina.  Sure you want to re-dial, Mr. NOS?

And we wonder whats wrong today...when is the last time you bought something with packaging like that ???? Simple yet fitting for the times, rugged yet refined, and cool to boot.

Case matches that of the Air warden. White dial variant?

Works for me!

I've seen this Dial variant and the Minute Hand is good!

'AIR WARDEN'.

I don't suppose the $29.75 advertised price is still valid....

No, I think I'd pass on that one......wouldn't it be nice though, to go back, maybe pick up a handful of them?

That box is not for that watch....the price sticker says 17 Jewels...the watch is 15 Jewels. It's a woman's watch box.
