CONDITION REPORT: The dial is the correct one for this series in mint condition, lume is all original and orange special hand is correct color and length. The DO90 bezel has a few tiny marks, but overall very nice with a slight fading to dark blue/grey color as well. The case is also all original, crisp, unpolished and in incredibly well preserved.
