~ Condition ~
There is one tiny chip of about 2mm to the enamel on the watch but it is not too noticeable. Otherwise the watch is in a very nice
condition and is in good working order.
The chain has an uneven number of enamel links leading us to believe that one link may have been lost and the chain repaired, but
the repair cannot be seen.
