This one is in great shape. Will look better with a new glass crystal and a replacement hour hand.

It looks like several watches we have ID'ed as 'Gladiator'. I really like these watches, the two-tone really makes them pop.

Beautiful watch Patrick, definitely a Gladiator. This style of hands, cathedral type, is available in two lengths. It appears that the shorter style should be used on this model. It looks like the minute hand has had the point clipped off.

Hi Geoff

It's a beaut for sure! The two-tone and awesome engraving of this almost flawless case is what attracted me to the model and this particular one.

Yes, looking now for elusive hands. Because of the odd high dome on the acrylic crystal I handn't noticed the clipped hand until I recieved it. I've got a more appropriate glass crystal replacment on order that won't distort the dial (but will definately show the clipped hand until replaced).
