    Yeah, it's in a weird spot. I looked up the movement on AP's site and there were something like 14000 of these movements produced. I think 150-500 of my tantalum example is a pretty generous estimate for how many were ever made, with the majority of the movements going into ROOs and huitiemes of more traditional metals. So borderline rarity + borderline vintage...it's a borderline judgment call!

    I think the OP made the right choice regarding replacing the movement, typically done with 70's/80's vach and patek as well; always good it they allow you to retain the original movement as well--wondered if they did?
