I had to use my 10x zoom lens & zoom in on the final image to see the markings. Also I adjusted the color to bring out the etchings. You can also see that it has a machine turned look on the inside of the back case. I haven't wound it up because I heard that if isn't oiled then it could cause excessive wear. It is very clean on the inside. My dad had another Bulova, 10+ years ago, but it was completly rusted on the inside. Extensive water damamge. I remember he sold it for the gold it had.
