This 3180 GS first raised logo is in good honest condition. Although the crown looks to be a replacement, everything else 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 shows ageing with some nicks and scratches. As can be seen from the pictures, the dial condition shows aging with visible blemishes throughout. The indexes are made of 14k solid gold as indicated by the sun shaped “special dial” logo above the six o’clock. The original handset shows some ageing but is in otherwise good conidition. The  “S” signed crown looks to be a replacement and is in poor condition. The current owner of this watch bought this from a dealer in Japan in 2018 where it was serviced by the dealer. Our watchmaker has checked the movement and confirmed that it is in good condition with no servicing needed at this moment. The movment is currently running at +5.9 seconds/day.
