    I concur. Killer dial on that one.

    I wouldn´t call your winning bid a low ball, though. It was equally reasonable as the guy´s asking IMO

    I'm a novice, I know nothing, but I looked at the "G" of Omega and wondered why it was higher at the top line? Is that a manufacture blip or a clue to real dials when looking at these vintage watches?

    marturx, how can you tell what the winning bid was? Does the eBay page show it somewhere that I'm not seeing it, or did you just talk to Canberra about it?

    Thanks!

    Most of us would accept a clover style crown on that watch, although it might not be the correct replacement. You can find them around for $30 - $45.

    Thanks all. I put in the offer as a "what the heck" as I went to bed. Woke up to find the invoice in my ebay inbox!

    But I have to stop now (for the time being). I've bought 3 things this week :eek:
