Dial: Hands down one of the nicest 'Close T' dial I have ever seen on one of these. The patina is just to die for. Tritium plots are in excellent+ shape and hardly show any degradation or discoloration.
Hands: Original Tritium hands in excellent shape.
Case: 'CB' asymmetrical case. It has never had a rendezvous with a polishing wheel. However, upon (very) close inspection it does look like at some point someone used a watch brushing pen (or another non-pro tool) to lightly re-brush the top of the lugs. I have tried to capture it in the macro pictures of the lugs. Pretty much unnoticeable in person, and most likely you'd never notice it even with a loupe unless I brought it up to your attention. The CB facets on the lugs are still super visible and crisp. Original owner's name engraved on the case back with an electric pen. Case shows some wear, (Please refer to pictures).
Crown & pushers: Original Fat Neck pushers & Flat Foot crown. Crown shows a small dent on the left side of the logo.
Bezel: Very nice "DON" (Dot Over Ninety) TACHYMETRE bezel in excellent condition. Shows some minor wear as shown in pictures.
Bracelet: Omega 1039 with 516 end links. Bracelet had 3 spring links removed.
Movement: Omega Cal 321. Watch is running and keeps time. It could benefit from a service as the hour totalizer hand does not re-set to 12.
*If a buyer decides to purchase this watch and have it serviced, I will cover $500 of the service cost at the shop of your choice or at LA Watchworks (where I can get the buyer a way better price on a Cal 321 service and I can drop the watch off at the buyer's behalf.)
Accessories: Omega Extract Of The Archives.
Notes: This is one of the nicest examples of a CB cased 105.012-66 on offer at the moment, and despite a couple of very minor nit-picky drawbacks, I can tell you that a dial like this is not to be missed. They almost never show up with such stunning, and damage free dials.
