No key with this watch. Gold gilding on plates very worn off and discolored.
Back hinge /case itself has some cracking on each side. Not necessarily noticable from outside, but can be seen from inside or holding it to the light (see pic).Some corrosion on hands, some light hairlines on face. Couple dings on case, one in back.
