Running at the time of inspection, however, not checked for accuracy nor water resistance/proofness. An overhaul is always recommended for used watches.
Special Notes: Very rare and fine men’s Consul watch with distinctive flexible fancy legs. Art Deco style dial. The jumbo case is quite unusual for vintage men’s watches of the same time period.
