The hands appear to be original with light patina developing. The painted Hamilton logo and minute track are excellent. The domed acrylic crystal has been polished clean and clear of any major defects. The crown is signed. The watch is ready to wear on a brand new brown genuine leather strap with silver toned buckle. The Swiss made 686 manual wind movement was serviced October 2020 and is running well and currently performing at +/- 17 seconds per day.
