I found this watch in my late Grandfather's house in Germany. I do not have any history on the watch and do not know if it was ever serviced, for sure not in the last few decades.
The watch winds and runs normally.
The chronograph hand starts/stops/resets.
The movement seems to be in very good condition.
The crystal does not have any scratches.
The case has areas of tarnish.
The dial has some fading but overall seems in nice condition.
