    I bought this one a while back just because it had one of the most attractive white Seamaster dials I’ve seen for a while and had it serviced about 6 months ago but never really wore it. It’s powered by a Calibre 501 movement and while similar to a 2846 I believe its a US market 14K Gold-filled case, there’s an engraving on the case back that can be seen in the photos but the case is in nice overall condition and I haven’t had it polished or messed with. The crown is and older replacement but I left it with that as its easy to grip and matches the gold color better than replacements would have.

    Shipping internationally $750US + shipping by express post, PM if interested.

    Worth noting that this locally produced case has a screw-down caseback as opposed to the normal snap-backs of the Swiss cased variants :thumbsup:

    Question: if it's a US variant, hasn't it got a cal. 500 instead of a 501?

    I actually don’t remember but it was a one owner watch on a twistoflex when I bought it covered in grime after being in a drawer forever, all it needed was a careful clean and full service

    4 or 5 years ago I would have bought this without even thinking about it just because it looked so good. (Those were the days it would be like Christmas coming back from a few week work trip.)
    Remember @dougiedude and a few other members were in the same buying spree mode in those days also.
