    Hi everybody,
    I'm interested in this watch. In my opinion no major problems with it but I'm not expert. What is your opinion ? Price is 3000 EUR.
    Thanks in advance. IMG_1294.JPG IMG_1295.JPG IMG_1296.JPG IMG_1297.JPG IMG_1298.JPG IMG_1299.JPG IMG_1300.JPG IMG_1301.JPG IMG_1302.JPG IMG_1303.JPG i

    Hey it's a speedy so I like it. 3k seems fair but I'd want to know it's been serviced. Some scratches on the case but if that doesn't bother you go for it!

    I think it is slightly pricey considering the condition.

    thats $3500 USD. seems a bit steep given the condition of the bezel and the almost guaranteed need for a service

    Nice but too expensive; replacement hands maybe?

    This is a good pickup at $3000-3500 US assuming the hands are tritium

    Chrono hand shows a little border degradation which indicates tritium lume, but the others are a little too "clean" looking to confirm. Dial looks to have a bit of lume still present, but can't really be sure. Maybe the OP's pics automatically bumped the brightness all the way up while also crushing the dynamic range? A 1984 should show much more evidence of tritium aging.

    Looks to be an 1171/633 bracelet with a decent amount of stretch. Probably a replacement as they were phased out in the early 80's, and a period correct 1450 will be much harder and costlier to source

    Echo what @ac106 said about the bezel, although it's correct it's in wearer and not collector condition. A NOS one would again be pricey.
