    Dear Forum!

    Could you please help? Maybe I would like to sell my rare seamaster calibre 560 because I would like to buy a nice Constellation . Where should I sell and how much should be the asking price. Thank you! 20171119_213449.jpg 20171113_121712.jpg

    eBay until you get 200 posts. Also, if you're going to try to skirt the selling rules here, you'll need better photos. From the photos, it looks like the bezel is missing, too.

    And a watchmaker just saw it. Said nothing. I will ask him. I am a very very amateur collector, knowing very little about watches. Just like them very much. I have maybe 20 watches, and not to much cash.

    Coat hanger S going with T Swiss Made T is not a good sign.

    That means the dial has been repainted at some point in the past and not original anymore.

    Thank you. Are you completely sure that it was repainted? And how can you spot that? It is the shape of the letters or something else as well? Thank you for your help.

    He means that the S in Seamaster should be more like this one (not the same model, but similar era):

    Also, around the plexyglass you'll see the bezel.

    I have to disagree, I think the dial on OPs watch is original. Don't forget that this is a US market Norman Morris watch, so dial "rules" don't always apply to these watches. Also the case is correct and not missing its bezel.

    That would also explain the "14K gold filled" in the outside of the caseback?. Always learning something new here!.

    Thank you. I bought this watch from the States 8-10 years ago and I thought I am going to sell it . But before that I checked the calibre. ( I had never opened it) And than I read the research from , I think ,Desmond and realised that maybe worth more than I thought because of its relative rarity. Thank you for your information and help.

    This is a correct lumed dial for US market at that time that I know.

    The pics are bad, but the text seems low quality, doesn't it?. Can you show a close dial pic, like that from hoipolloi?.
