NOS double boxed, with all the original paperwork. I bought this 20+ years ago. When I got it home I wound it the wrong way and thought is wasn't working. I figured a 'new' watch from the 60s would need to be cleaned and that's why it wasn't working. Never took it to a Watchmaker, and then two years ago I read the instructions completely and realized that I wound it the wrong way--tried it again...perfect. What a great 'chirp', this one is the Revolution'. That is the only time the watch has been tested. A friend tried it on his wrist, without my permission, and that is the only time, to my knowledge that it has been worn. Immaculate SS case, NO MARKS, as it should be for a new watch. No aging on the dial, great SS markers. Original, signed man-made band, lizard print.It is too perfect to wear and I just can't bring myself to do so, so why hold on to it?? I have some nice Gruens, Zodiacs, and a number of Midos that I wear, and this watch is far and away better than those. How often do you see perfection...I mean, this watch has never been worn, and day-to-day, never...The last "NOS" Cricket sold for $1200, but it wasn't NOS, there were marks for wear on case back and front. This watch, though Expensive is worth every cent. After it's invention in 1948, four sitting Presidents wore Vulcain Crickets..
