The case appears to be only slightly polished, the lugs are still in their thick original state and the hippocampus is still visible on the case back. The bezel has slightly faded over time, but is still in overall good condition. The lollipop hand doesn't react to UV and appears to have been refilled while the hour, minutes and dial lume all react properly to UV and geiger counter.
