Case in good condition, very slightly faded, side frets tarnished.
Dial very light surface scratches and some light tarnishing, would benefit from a clean, hands are good.
Movement - going train functions and the strike functions but very slowly, the quarter chiming tune selection functions and will function when pressure is applied to the wheel work, but the whole movement requires an overhaul as it is gummed up from not having been serviced in many years. Some of the steel work has surface rust, again this could be addressed by an overhaul.
