Movement is running in every position though I don't guarantee time keeping. Outer case has some wear, with some losses of details. Inner case is generally ok, but there is some minor issues with springs to mention. The spring of outer case is later replacement. The spring that holds movement inside the case is a little too hard, it's sometimes hard to pull off the movement.Nice watch, don't miss it.
