Case: The previously polished case is very good showing a semi sleeve polished finish and only light wear from use. The black bezel insert is in very condition and shows some cracks around the 85 index
Dial: The matte black dial is excellent showing only light wear for its age. The silver subdials have some light and subtle patina and are otherwise excellent. Most of the lume plots are missing some or all of their luminous mass which is common for Daytonas of this era. The remaining lume has aged to a warm creamy hue and the hands match perfectly. All lume glows brightly when exposed to UV and falls off rapidly at the same rate which is correct for this dial version.
Bracelet: The 20 D-link jubilee bracelet is excellent showing only very light stretch for its age. The clasp is stamped with a 1979 date code.
Notes: The watch is running slightly out of spec.
