Apart from the crystal - which, as Mr. Battle suggested, needs to be replaced - it appears to be in good shape. Nice watch.

real patina and not sure about the crystal composition yet.
Well, regardless of the composition, this case should take any correctly sized plexi aka hesalite. The sooner, the better - it's not only cracked, but also loose. In the wrist shot, the big crack is by 7 o'clock, in the other pic - roughly from 2 to 3, so this whole crystal is loose like hooker's morals.
