    It’s been a while since I posted an Incoming thread but few days ago I found this and now waiting for shipping. If it was not the weekend in US, I would had it tomorrow but now have to wait until next week.

    The part that is interesting is that I was looking for another brand for 2 years and all information I could find based on military watches, UG is rarer.

    Thought I will ask all UG lovers to guess before I post the pics.

    thank you. That is a beautiful watch and this is what I was looking for a long time. An issued Zenith CP-2.

    Congrats on the watch.
    Very beautiful.
    Is the price on Philips online watch auction results with or without buyer's premium?
    Are you based in HK or will the auctioneer take care of import duties and transportation?
    Thanks

    The hammer was 100k HKD, with buy’s premium I Believe the final price became 125k HKD. Missed that by a hair, congrats to Manuu once again.
