Sorry, have to put this up front: I am only interested in contact from members in good standing with a history on this forum. Not interested in solicitation from third parties, dealers or passersby. Forgive me if I don't respond to those inquires now that I've asked not to have them. --- This is simple. I am looking for a 1655 with a good, thick case and a warm, patinated dial without defects. I am flexible on the exact year and dial mark – but for me it's the warm, aged lume reacting to the orange hand that really bring this together visually. The following image represents this well, and it's a key desire in this quest, so I'll let it do the talking. To be clear, I am exclusively looking for dial markers that have aged into a warm, sandy yellow or orange color, also nicely embodied by this image. Would consider trading in, up or against with a 1969/70 1016 and/or a pristine 145.022.74 Speedmaster with a very nice, warm patina ...and/or cash in some configuration or arrangement. But all cash is also fine, for the right piece! I will bump this every month or so. I'm expecting it to take a while. Thanks for reading, and never stop Explorering.
