CONDITION REPORT: The dial, hands, bezel and case are all original. The case is unpolished and overall sharp and thick. The rare 1035/506 bracelet is complete with full links. Overall a stunning one owner example. We polished the crystal slightly to reveal the beautifully preserved dial and hands.

The 105.003 reference is nicknamed 'Ed White' after the astronaut who famously wore this reference into space in 1965. The straight lug case was discontinued in 1967-68 at the end of the production of the 321 caliber and are not only rare, but highly collectible.
