Cream-coloured dial with signs of wear that add to its charm. Very large seconds sub-dial at 6 o'clock.
Small mark on the plexiglas crystal between 4 and 5 o'clock, which isn't visible to the naked eye.
New generic strap in green fabric with loops in leather, Morellato brand. Measurements: 18 mm at the lugs x 18 cm in length excluding the case and buckle.
Morellato steel buckle.
