Notes: Every vintage watch tells a story, and if we look at this particular example and study its overall condition we can tell that this watch was used (possibly daily) by its original owner but was also cared for and not abused.
There are 3 service marks inside the caseback which suggest that this watch was serviced every 12+/- years on average.
I buy a lot of Speedmasters and most come in with rotten or melted gaskets and/or never been serviced before. It is not the case with this one.
The original owner used it as it should be used but also took good care of it so it could be passed on to the next lucky owner in fine shape!
