    A G 582! Oh, that is simply spectacular. Please, let's have the story behind it!

    As for the A 3818, among the more difficult references to find, and because so few, it's difficult to come up with a price. I would put the A 3818 (along with the A 3817) as second only to the A 386 in market value just now. I'll estimate an EBay action price in the USD5000-6000 range, assuming a correct watch in good condition. The big problem, as with all of the similarly cased Primeros, is case polishing, which can easily ruin the thing.

    The A 3818 was my first Primero - had the good luck to stumble into it at an estate sale, and the better luck not to walk away...

    What a marvel Lou.... ::love::
    About the story of the little "treasure", thanks Lou for the right word;) , it was of my father in law... Forgot for about 23 years in that poor box.... Few days ago, Stefano (same name as me...) sent me few pics of it. I asked him who was the owner, and the price. Laughing he told me: "It's mine"!!!! And told me that was the father's first watch. He knows my deep love for this kind of timepiece so gave me the watch... ::psy::

    Superb!, Refined and sporty without "the over the top" look of some gold models.
