    This is a very nice watch from a reputable seller. Applied numerals are indeed original - it just means that the numbers are individually fitted to the dial, not moulded in one piece with it or just printed on. This is the much more expensive and preferred way of doing it.

    I have purchased two watches from Norman (X350 XJR), both exquisite!::love:: And this one is as well...if I didn't already have a watch almost identical to this, I would buy it!!!:thumbsup:

    IMO, the price is too high for watch powered by a 570 (small) movement. I would not buy it at that price.

    What do you think a fair price would be then?

    I think it's an okay price. I sold a similar Seamaster DeVille for $700-ish, and Seamasters (no DeVille) usually fetch a hundred or two more than their otherwise identical front loading SMDV brothers.

    Can't tell you but definitely I won't pay for a watch powered by a 570 at that price. With a few hundred more, you can get a SS constellation in good shape powered by a 551 chronometer.
