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.
