Updated information regarding the description of the watch: 10/225/16
This watch is a split second chronograph, we have had this looked at via photographs by Mike Poisson of MGP Incorporated of Wayland, MA, a noted northeast watch restorer. From the photographs, he sees no issues regarding its authenticity. Watch is operative at this time, some of the button functions on the side appear to be sticky, and may not be totally working accurately. No warrantees or guarantees will be given by the Robert C. Eldred Co. as to its running condition or authencity.
