I brought it in Germany and it is 100% original. It has the original Edox sticker on the back with a hand written 120/- a sticker over the top of that with 60/- hand written and a swing tag taped to the strap with “Preis 86.00” printed on it.
This watch is early seventies and preis is price in German so the original price would have been 86 Deutshe Marks. Then, who knows? Maybe it was re-priced years later to DM120 or maybe it is in Euro or it went abroad and the 120/- is another currency. Anyway, it was 120 something and then, still unsold, was reduced to half price, 60/-. It didn’t sell for 60/- either and probably spent the next 30 years or so in some back street jewellers shop drawer.
When it finally saw the light of day again, earlier this year, I snapped it up. Tarnished case, lightly scratched glass and case, broken down glue in the strap…….speaking of the strap, how seventies is the brown suede!!
I did not touch any of the stickers or the strap. I gave the case and glass a light polish.
The lume on the hands shows signs of breaking up through age and the dial is slightly faded probably from years of being in a shop window.
The movement is an ST1950 with the typical Edox highest quality finish.
