Dial: Excellent condition glossy black dial with luminous hour markers and hands. The dial has aged beautifully and shows evidence of radium burn that has left it with a subtle brown hue when viewed in bright sunlight. The hour markers, hands and bezel insert all glow when exposed to UV light and drop off quickly. The watch tops out a geiger which is correct and indicative of the radium lume used during this era.
Case: Excellent condition 41mm stainless case serial number 29XX that shows light wear. The bakelite bezel insert is also in excellent condition and is fully intact with some cracking.
Movement: A. Schild automatic calibre 1461 N is in good operating condition, service history is unknown.
Other: The watch comes mounted on a period-correct black tropic strap.
