    Hi guys,

    Came across this conny and i want to ask for your opinion.

    Ist the dial original? Looks fine for me. Am i wrong?

    Case looks nice and sharp. Crown doesnt seem original to the watch. But that shouldnt be a deal breaker. Unfortunally i dont have any pictures of the movement and of the inner caseback :(

    Nice watch, looks good IMO.
    It's likely a 14900 ref. as no officially certified on dial.

    Dial is very nice
    Looks like an original crystal

    The case looks as though the bottom lugs are good and sharp but the top lugs have some rounding? - may be the lighting though

    Hi,
    also placed a bid for this one but should have been more courageous :-(
    Looks great! So I will keep looking for a 551...
    By the way, do you live in Germany? (because of the seller being German)
    Cheers and congratulations,
    Christoph
