but has just a couple of spots on the winding wheels. This does
not effect the perfect mechanical condition of this high grade movement.
This well running Ball watch has been professionally cleaned and
oiled, and is ready to be put into your collection!
Case: The screw
back and bezel case is marked BALL MODEL on the inside of the case
lid. It is also marked KEYSTONE WATCH CASE, J. BOSS, 20 YEARS indicating
it is heavy gold filled. There are some minor signs of use, a few
very minor dings from use. It appears to have been professionally
replated. Can't tell for sure - that's the sign of great plating
if has been plated! The bezel and back cover thread on and off properly.
The original looking stirrup bow is worn, but still secure. The
crown is in above average condition, and winds and sets properly.
Overall, it is in great condition!
2 mm thick beveled glass crystal is in excellent shape and appears
in new condition!
