Please review images to make your judgment on cosmetic condition which I believe is a matter of personal opinion. You will get what you see. Please also read the entire disclaiming text in the description section about the vintage watches in general.
As an used vintage item in general, there might be some dirt, scratches, and/or other forms of wear here and there, but nothing major for the age in my view except for notable wear on case and band. Again, please review all images to make your own judgment. Please ask any questions you have. Watch dimension and size: please review the last image for size measurements.
Shown on caliper is the approximate watch width in mm without crown or button. Gender classification is strictly my own opinion. The band length does NOT determine gender of a watch. It can be difficult to classify some watches as they may have mens size but lady's style, or they may appear small for men but big for women. Therefore, it is very important to make you own assessment on the gender based on style and size shown in the images.
For approximate size of the watch and length of band, please see the last image with a ruler scale placed next to the watch. We strive to list items accurately. But errors could happen sometimes. International Buyers - PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE. You are welcome to shop for watches of other brands.General Notes for Vintage Watches - Please Read. Unless otherwise noted, all watches we sell have been tested to be in good working condition. They keep accurate time currently. However, due to vintage nature of the watches we sell, as a general rule we can't guarantee their long term accuracy. Typically, for quartz watch, if it runs, it will run pretty accurately.
For mechanical wind up watches, on the other hand, regular and routing services and maintenance by professional watch makers are always needed for accurate time-keeping. Some watches, especially those with leather bands, may have certain smells inherited from their previous owners such perfumes, body mists, or even storage. Although these smells will fade out soon or late, they might not be suitable for particularly smell-sensitive buyers. We do try to avoid listing the items with strong smells.
However, due the nature of used items, we can't 100% guarantee all watches are smell-less. Unless otherwise noted, all batteries in the quartz and electric watches we sell are replaced recently. However, due to various reasons and in very rare cases but could happen!, a battery could become drained within short period of time. However, in the "Dead on Arrival" battery situation, we may, at our discretion, send you the replacement battery. All vintage and used watches are expected to show certain wear, from "hard to see" to light to significant.
Such wear is particularly common on leather bands if equipped, which could be significant in some watches. We try to take clear pictures for each watch we offer to sell.

However, in very rare cases, movement mechanism of a vintage watch may get stuck while being thrown around in transit. This could cause the watch to stop running.
