CONDITION:
MOVEMENT - Running fine (recently serviced/adjusted) and marked Cauny Prima, caliber unknown, 15 jewels (see picture), manual 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 excellent 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 excellent, I would say about 30-40 seconds, maybe not very consistent (laying flat and facing up - 1 position), and of course can easily be adjusted. Sure this is good enough for such a vintage watch.
DIAL - Unrestored in excellent condition with slight darkening and minor oxidations - very nice pearl tone finish background with black engravings. Has no scratches, no cracks, no deformations, no pitting, no flaws at all. No significant yellowing. No fading to the letters, scales and markings (see pictures). The hour markers are gold plated and raised in perfect condition with no spots of oxidation. All markings are intact.
HANDS - All hands are straight and original and have no flaws, no bends and no deformations. No oxidations to the gold plated hours and minutes hands. In perfect condition with no scratches.
CASE - The case is gold filled and polished Replated - insignificant wear like few micro scratches that are hardly visible in pictures. No wear to the gold plating corners and edges. No scuffs or cracks. Case has no deformations, all the edges are nice and crisp, No damaged corners. Lugs have an exact 20mm opening and are not bent by accidental deformation in any direction.
WINDING CROWN - Excellent, gold plated and not original - aftermarket replacing. No dents, scratches or scuffs. No brassing, edges very crisp. Setting the hour perfectly.
BACK COVER - Stainless steel marked with normal Cauny chrono marks and Logo (see pic). Snap-on type. Cover has no deformation, no noticeable scratches. No dents, nicks, dings or scuffs. No oxidations. Snaps easily and locks firmly.
CRYSTAL - Generic acrylic and as new, polished - no scratches or cracks, probably similar to the original one.
BAND & BUCKLE - New, seems unused, very nice. Very soft touch and flexible. NO wear and no flaws. Buckle as new too, no wear.
All perfectly clean !
