It started with Darcy saying this : If you're referring to the watch I posted it runs perfectly always has and that's not missing any screws that I know of… Speaking of missing some screws or at least loose ones I interpreted that as a dig, inferring I have a screw loose. So, if someone is asking for help and takes the position they want to insult me, then I see no reason to tippy toe around a direct concern I have and always have when someone "inherits a watch" or "wants to know what its worth". For those of us that have been around the block, its standard procedure for someone to do this with full intent to solicit bids and offers. Thats exactly what I feel the OP did and is doing to intentionally or unintentionally skirt the rules regarding FS posts. I disagree that the watch is worth 20k in this condition. I disagree that 2998-5 casebacks are "readily available" or not a problem for seasoned collectors. Sure, if you are Gemini or Spacefruit then a lollipop hand, base 1000 bezel or 2998-1 hands are all "readily available" but, for anyone else in the world you won't find one. In fact, can someone, ANYONE post me a link to a 2998-5 caseback that you have ever seen for sale ANYWHERE EVER? And while your at it, figure how much that part will cost and factor that into any bid or offer to establish the value for this piece. Anyone care to guess what a proper bracelet with real 6 ends is going to cost to make this watch correct? $3000? And finally Darcy, if you "have been enjoying this watch for a couple of months and it hasn't seem to cause any grief or loss/gain any time from where it was set', then why on earth would you "like to service it"? If you car is running properly do you bring it in for service? The whole post stinks to me of shilling to sell a watch that the OP may or may not own. PS: Didn't Gemini ask for a picture of the watch set to a certain time? Where is that pic?
