MOVEMENT - Running fine and marked Cortebert, CAL. 451 17 jewels (see pictures), automatic bumper wind mechanical, SWISS. Machine is very clean, has no oxidation and no flaws. The ticking and balance movement seems very strong and the accuracy is good for a piece of this vintage. Seems oiled and never to have been disassembled - has no tools marks on it. I've checked the accuracy of the watch and the difference in 24 hours is good, I would say between 30-40 seconds and consistent (laying flat and facing up - 1 position), and of course can easily be adjusted. Charging easily on the wrist (with usual daily motion) and with the crown.
DIAL - professionally Restored in perfect mint condition. Has no scratches, no cracks, no deformations, no pitting, no flaws at all. No oxidation or yellowing. No fading to the letters, scales and markings (see pictures).
HANDS - hands are original and have no flaws, no bends and no deformations. In perfect condition with minor and normal acceptable micro spots of oxidation, no scratches.
CASE - the case is stainless steel and polished/brushed. It has not been restored as the dial. It is very good with some little marks from daily use like tiny nicks and light scratches here and there, softened from use. No oxidations overall. No scuffs. Case has no deformations, all the edges are nice and crisp. No damaged corners. Lugs have an exact 18mm opening and are not bent by accidental deformation in any direction.
WINDING CROWN - excellent, no dents, scratches or scuffs. No visible wear, edges very crisp. Setting the hour perfectly and smoothly.
BACK COVER - Stainless steel marked with Omega marks and Logo (see pic). Snap-on type. Cover has few minor deformations. No marks from opening tools. No dents, nicks, dings or scuffs. No oxidations. Closes easily and locks firmly.
CRYSTAL - acrylic and polished - no obvious scratches, probably is aftermarket. NO cracks.
BAND - used with obvious wear. Soft touch and flexible. One loop only.
All perfectly clean !
