Condition:                    The movement is running, keeping to time and striking correctly however, it would
                                    benefit greatly from a full overhaul. The strike/silent selection lever requires work and

                                    the top and the rating thread requires extending. The movement fixing brackets are
                                    original but have been repaired. The case is excellent with slight damage and age
