Killer straight hands! Thanks for sharing.
Obviously you don't know much about your watch and I'm sure it's not for sale
Do you already own this watch, or are you looking to buy and would like more info?
All correct parts for a 165.024-63 in this serial range incl. the type 1 bezel, early second hand and dial without Ts and no pinhole.
But condition of lume is not that attractive IMO. Especially not at that very high BIN price found on the bay
Gone from 18k euro to 12k... and now with one bid on it. Correct 165.024-63's are rare, but not +12k rare
Just for sale on.ebay for 12k euros... A New high?
Regardless of what you want (I don't think anyone is clear on that, by the way), could I use your post as an example of how a first post is done? Avatar? Check. Introduction? Check. Clear photos? Check.
It's for sale on eBay I think. Nice early example but don't like the patina much
Is the bezel correct?. The font looks funny to me.
Good of you to come on here and get a fair assessment of FMV.
While the lume patina isn't the best, still looks like a nice correct piece. We always like to see those types of pieces.
You should try searching eBay sold listings.
Your fist post is dishonest, as it seems like you are seeking info on the watch when you in fact are already trying to sell it.
I'm not sure what you are saying is so rare about this. You seems to ask if it is rare in your first post, and then state it is rare in your second post.
seems like his post was an automatic translation gone bad!
Is it already April 1st where you are or have you been taking those happy pills again?
I like to recognize a good effort, occasionally. Content is highly questionable but the OP was a good effort.
I am curious why you already listed it for sale even though you did not have information to help you with value. Some things do not track very well here, like the photos you have of the dial removed, etc. The pics were by someone who knew what they were doing/ photographing. I have trouble reconciling how someone can know so much about what to do, whether things are original or not, the scarcity, etc., yet has trouble searching eBay watchrecon, etc. to get info on what people ask and hopefully what people sell them for.
Bezel is correct... and pretty nice also. Type 1 for the 16x.024's and only seen on the 165.024-63's and a few early -64.
One of mine with type 1 bezel below. As I said, all parts are correct on the OP watch. Condition and lume can always be debated. But price is to high IMO. 12K is an very optimistic dealer's price...not the price level in a private sale IMO.
But yes, besides the RN300 & W10's, an all correct early 165.024-63 is perhaps the rarest of the 16x.024's.
@IAM , let the auction re-run without any minimum price and you will get the market value for this one. Will properly be around 5-6K, perhaps more. Prices on the SM300's are on a rise, and this should get more than your average 165.024, but not double!
A lot of people do follow these and people in the know will offer accordingly.
You just ruined the plan to save eBay fees.
