The dial has its original silver bezel and a replacement new plexi crystal. The dial has beautiful black painted Roman numerals with a black outer minute track. The number 10 has lost a little paint. The blued steel hands are beautifully designed and are in excellent condition. The blued steel sub second hand is in excellent order as well. This is a wonderful 3/4 plate lever movement has a lovely gilt finish. The movement is numbered 105xxx.
This beautiful movement is FULLY SIGNED'Chronometer Prima' in a lovely typesetting and'15 rubis'. I do not however think that this is a Chronometer grade movement, but this is just my opinion.
It is crown wind and lever set (on the inside of the case at the side of the dial) which work as they should.
