Inner case is hallmarked 18ct gold, it would be a shame to remove the inscription as this would make the inner case rather thin. Interior glass loose. Dial and hands are in good condition. Case hinges are in good condition and close cleanly. Front cover does open on its spring. The movement is working but we do not guarantee reliability of timekeeping. Interior case back is presentation inscribed. Bullseye glass present. Case back monogram engraved.
