WNS-MCTY-3040 - Rosario - Starburst Dial - 17J - Central Dial Close Up View

Case: The round shaped gold plated case measures 34 mm across (36 mm including the crown) and 42 mm (top to bottom.)  It is 9 mm thick.  The dome shaped crown is located at the 3 o'clock position.  The back of the screw down case is marked Stainless Steel Back, Antimagnetic, Waterproof and  Incabloc.  Dial: The round dial has a light gold color background. 

The most predominant feature of this watch is the snowflake design in the center which is surrounded by a Starburst textured outer section.  It really plays tricks on your eyes when viewed from different angles or viewed at different levels of light.  It also has a seconds/minutes scale around the outer edge where the increment indicators are dark gold tone colored lines.  Along the scale are luminous hour makers where the 12, 3, 6 and 9 o'clock positions are in the form of a small triangle, and the 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10 and 11 o'clock positions are in the form of a small circle.

 The hour markers are raised gold tone Arabic numerals at the 12, 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 o'clock positions.  The 1, 3, 5, 7, 9 and 11 positions feature a raised gold tone arrow marker.

The straight dauphine-style hour and minutes hands are gold in color with a luminous coating in the middle.  And the dauphine-style sweep seconds hand is gold in color and has a very neat and eye catching red arrow tip on it. 

The crystal has a slight curvature on the surface and angular sides and is raised 4MM above the case at its center. 

It is marked Rosario, 17 Jewels below the 12 o'clock position, and  Incalob, Antimagnetic above the 6 o'clock position, and Swiss below the 6 o'clock position.

Movement: Swiss Made 17 Jewels Mechanical Wind.

Strap: 18 mm genuine leather padded and sewn which is medium brown in color with a crocodile design.  It has a gold tone buckle.  The total length is 9."

Comments: Here is an all original and unique vintage fifties design featuring a stunning snowflake design in the center of its dial which is surrounded by a starburst textured outer section.    

This watch is in excellent cosmetic and running condition, and is an absolutely beautiful timepiece. It keeps accurate time.
