Could not resist this beauty. I've wanted one for a while and this was in amazing shape.
Congratulations! Mine says hi.
Um, where did this movement shot come from? It's a picture of a picture in a book.
hey @Larry S - that movement photo does look a bit....like its copied...from a book. Very blurry such that there's no information there that's usable
It looks like a picture of a picture, but the strap is the same if you look at the stitching and croc grain.
There is a faint mark at the dial foot (11.30) a newer replacement crown and a worn rotor axle (?).
A 50 year old watch that's not prefect!! Basphemous!! Hang the witch! Jk... Congrats on one of the best watches ever made and a fine example!!
I did not open the case. Movement shot from website. Guess I should have disclosed. Sorry folks. Reputable shop. Very nice inventory.
No worries L. Enjoy!
Photo is Same watch. Case is so nice did not want to touch it with my case back tool so I used the photo.
Nice pick up! And nothing gets past the collective eye of the folks on this forum.
As Hoi says, that's the newer replacement crown. It's a bit taller than the original, making it easier to wind.
Obviously. lesson learned.
Movement shots to compensate for my shortcut faux pas yesterday. Managed without a scratch.
The Force is back in balance.
The crown appears thicker than the correct one and looks like those for the *older* Connies with cal. 50x and bumper movements. This one not only looks bigger on the outside, but also has a bigger tube size and will not seal properly if the watch still has the original tube. This is more concerning than the outside appearance. If the crown wiggles in the closed position, it is the wrong size.
I have the correct decagonal small size posted for trade in the for sale section. If this is the case and you want to trade crowns...
No wiggles when closed. All seems to work properly. Given the chore of date setting, I like the crown.
I'll have a look ... Thanks
Correct crown for that model with small logo.
