CONDITION REPORT: Overall untouched condition. Dial and hands are original and in mint condition with all tritium intact with a nice creamy patina. The case appears unpolished, worn and sharp with original untouched finishings/bevels and the crown is original as well. The bezel shows noticeable signs of wear, but it is original also. Overall a stunning and honest example. The bracelet is tight without damage and correct for the last series of 105.003 and date matches the archives information.

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.
