Yep, it is very close to NOS. Just a tiny bit of gold loss on bottom of lugs. Dial is near perfect as well. Runs and keeps great time.

I'm good with Commodore....but I still crack up on folks use of "new old stock" (or almos new old stock).  NOS is a description of the history of the watch at last point of sale from a store or distributor.  The condition is inferred from this description, as it's in the same condition as a new watch.  I don't remember buying many "new" watches with minimal wear on the lugs....LOL   But I've mellowed on this over the years.  I know what folks mean, but dissagree with how folks say it.  ...as do most of the price guides and watch condition grading publications..... 

Remember I have hatchet just like the one George Washington used to chop down the cherry tree.  Its now in "new old stock condition".  First I had to replace the handle, and then replace the head, but I used new old stock parts.  So other than that, it's in new old stock condition and complety original.
