(Note that we can make a complete new identical porcelain dial if you would like to replace this one) The bezel glass as a crack in the upper portion. The movement is Austrian, with with its complexities as noted. Just purchased out of a south florida home--it was originally purchased by his parents in France over 60 years ago in an antique shop. It has been in storage for many years. Just purchased this week from a couple needing some extra money to pay for the Christmas Holidays. One of the columns has a crack on the top edge. It will need the movement serviced because it is very dirty, so we are selling it 'as is'. It has such great eye appeal.
