Overall, this 3180 GS first raised logo is in nice condition. We believe everything is original to the watch as can be evidenced by the consistency of the movement code, caseback number, and dial serial number. The gold filled case has a few nicks, scratches and is aged. It has been polished in the past. The dial surfaces show slight aging blemishes but is clean overall. The indexes are made of 14k solid gold as indicated by the sun shaped “special dial” logo above the six o’clock. The hands are crisp and the “sword” hands are consistent with the raised logo variant. The crown is original and signed “S” as it should. The price difference between the first and second piece is coming from the condition of the case and dial. The service history is unknown but our watchmaker has checked the movement and made simple adjustments. It is in good condition and running at +4.9 seconds/day.
