The silver dial is excellent with little to no patina visible but a few dings that are most noticeable under magnification. The applied silver markers are accented with black enamel down the middle and are excellent. The paint for the Hamilton logo, the 'H' logo, and selfwinding branding is in minty condition. The large red painted accents for the minute track are also in mint condition. The original silver hands with black paint down the center are excellent. The watch is ready to wear on the original vintage Hamilton link bracelet that came with the watch.
