    with black fat font.jpg Hey Guys,

    Please note: Fuchsia insert has been sold and watch now being sold with cool fat font black insert.

    This one is a beauty, with dial paint that is nearly flawless. A few areas where lume is pockmarked and the 6, 9 and 12 lume plots have a tiny amount of scarring from hand drag. Very hard to notice if not magnified. The case is nice and fat, the tops of the lugs were re-satinized and the bevels detailed. Case sides appear original.

    The hands were relumed, movement serviced and case detailed at ABC watchwerks in LA in dec. of 2016.

    Serial # 29611xx, and inner caseback date of II.71 place the production in the second quarter of 1971 which (I think) was near the final run of the mark 1 "Long E" dial series.

    When I purchased this piece several years ago it came with an all black insert.

    Bracelet is a later 78360 H, in nice shape with minimal stretch. If set at maximum length should fit wrist up to 7.25"

    Date wheel shows correct open 6 and 9

    My pics tend to exaggerate flaws, and I am always a bit queasy about shipping high dollar watches, so I would greatly prefer a local (NYC, NJ) sale so you can check this piece out prior to purchase. But in the event that I am unable to sell locally, I will be happy to ship.

    $13,500 with all black insert.

    If we do a face-to-face I can be a bit flexible on price.

    I accept pp (f+f or you pay fee) or bank transfer. No trades considered at this time.

    Please don't hesitate to contact me for questions or additional pics.

    No returns unless misrepresented.

    Thanks OF!

    Plenty of offers for the insert, but only a few nibbles for the complete package.

    If I am able to hand off the complete package in a face-to-face I would be willing to be a bit flexible on the price...

    I've never seen a 1675 that made my heart skip a beat until this one with the Fuchsia Insert - WOW!
    What's the standard offering when you're out of Dead Presidents? Is it a lung or a kidney, maybe both?

    Full disclosure about the Lume, not too common, doesn't distract from the value or the seller, the opposite is the case:) ..and a divine piece, GLWS!

    Fuchsia insert has been sold. I will add pics of the watch with the black insert that it came with originally in the near future.
    Watch w/blk insert now priced at $13,500.
    I have two other nice redback inserts that can also be sold with this watch if interested.

    A scammer is using your picture to "sell" this watch on Chronotrader for 8k$... I'm assuming it isn't you ;)
    Let's hope no one falls for it!
