The gold-capped case is in really good condition for its age, with very little wear on the corner of the lugs. The tropical caramel dial has a very nice brushed finish with a light mark near 11 o’clock. The crystal has a small crack all the way on the edge by 4 o'clock and can be replaced if needed.

This is a reminder that there are crazy cool pieces out there for under $1000. Watches that have the same characteristics as some of the most sought-after vintage watches. Take a look at the crazy tropical dial on this Omega; it reminds me of a warm cappuccino. What was once probably a brushed champagne or silver dial has now turned caramel. Then the show stopper, in my opinion, those beautiful baton hands. What is more in the spirit of Patek Calatrava than prominent gold baton hour markers on a clean dial layout. If you one day dream of owning a Patek Reference 96 or similar this is the gateway to that life!
