CONDITION REPORT: The dial, hands, bezel and case are all original. The hippocampus on the case back is clearly visible and unpolished. The dial has faded to a rich brown color and luminous material has thinned over time and aged with a slight cream color patina. The bezel has faded over time to brown and silver in a very unique way. The bracelet is not the correct reference for this watch and endlinks have been cut to fit, but received as is and left it on.

The 105.003-65 is nicknamed the ED WHITE because this was the year of production and model that was taken into space by Ed White.
