Manufactured in the early 1960s, this International watch features the Caliber 853 movement and is waterproof. It boasts a silver dial with popular bar indexes. The waterproof case with a long lug design, rarely seen except from the 1950s to the 1960s, measures 34mm in diameter with a strap width of 20mm, providing an exquisite size. The combination of embossed uplifted bullet indexes and dolphin hands creates a simple yet timeless design. Overall, it is in excellent condition, retaining the radium luminescence on the dial and hands from that era. While there are minor scratches, the stainless steel case doesn't show signs of thinning due to polishing, maintaining a natural appeal. This piece belongs to a one-owner collection, exuding a genuine vintage charm.
