    Nice watch overall.
    Price is on the higher side with the 1116/575 bracelet and restored/relumed hands.

    I would check if the papers are written or if you get just a booklet for that price.
    Agreed with @ndgal price is definitely on the high side for a 69

    That booklet is at least 2 years older than the watch, so most likely not filled out with this watch's info.

    Which makes it an insane price for a 69 + box + booklet IMO
    Thanks for the precision @ngdal ;)

    Now marked as “reserved”. At least someone thinks it’s a good deal.

    For that price you can easily find a better -69 !

    Thanks for all your input. The reserve was me. We negotiated 8500 USD. The seller stated this was a one owner all original, (his dads watch). I was left with the impression that he was a one time seller. When he sent me an offer he stated that, “I usually like to do a bank transfer to avoid C24’s 500$ fee.” All of a sudden it became a hard sell, with “someone else wants this and you need to move now.” That right there gave me pause. After consulting with a collector much more learned than me, I backed out as gracefully and respectfully as I could less than 24 hrs later.
    The anger and vitriol that was sent my way from Bucharest via C24’s messaging was surprising. After the first three I stopped reading the next three and just archived them without reading.
    I appreciate all the advice and input from this forum. I’m glad my search will continue.
