This watch WAS in great shape and one I wore often. THEN when removing moment...I dropped it, caught the hour hand on a thread of carpet and bent it when retrieving....broke it when trying to fix.....still have the minute hand as shown. Will be sending this nice watch to the "doctor" for the repair and a tune up service while there....
