    Not good. I've seen lots of these come up for sale over the years (a relatively regular Lemania search does it), and this is about the most sober one I have seen. the remains of the red paint are to be seen on the sial (which previously filled the Mercedes name and laurel leaves). Hwever, many other examples are gold-cased with blue dials.
    A nice movement (later Speedmaster type) but otherwise filth.
    At 34mm it isn't really unisex, it's tiny. Not that I require everything to be over 40mm like to modern trend seems to dictate, but my Fortis Cosmonaut is 38mm, and is comfortably restrsined in size. Much less and things start to look silly.
    As Al commented on my PWI Orfina, a lady's manual wind chronograph is an odd thing to design.........

    Cheers

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested
