In light of my new marvin flying dutchman I thought I would make a new thread where these watches could all come together and we could see what dial variations go together with the serials. But first I should start with mine. One year ago the hunt started for me my specifications were "simple" I wanted one with an original crown and a black textured dial. It sounds easier than it is but after one year of hunting I stumbled across this in south africa. I sent the buyer an email and after a week I got an email saying he still had it and was willing to sell it. His pictures were not that good but i saw the dial and crown so i was sold. When it came in the mail i was just stunned. The watch was in barn find condition with cheese that we could also call vintage . I payed 250 euro for it. I have no idea what this is worth because I haven't seen a lot of these. My serial is 893029. Show yours and give some extra info. I think this watch deserves more attention. I hope you like mine. I think this model was launched in 1954 but I'm not sure. I hope this thread gets attention and we can shed light on these rare and beautiful watches.
