Case: Solid stainless steel case measuring 40mm in diameter excluding the original signed screw-down triple-lock crown.  It looks very close to its original finish with nice chamfers on the brushed lugs.  The condition of the bezel and insert is overall sharp and clean, unidirectionally turning with perfect friction and showing just a few light surface marks from gentle wear.
