The watch itself is historically important, especially belonging to Mr. Newman. The dial is unrestored, with a nice patina and aged lume. The case has some wear but is in good shape with the engraving “Drive Carefully, Me” on the case back from his wife. The watch speaks to both the watch enthusiast and car lover.
