on this - 600 usd , what do you think?
No movement pic.
I don't like the discoloration.
What's the case made of?
No pic of the back either?
Gold cap - the discoloration is what I like.
Case looks worn through in many places.
Looking at the dial and the size of those hour markers I have the feeling this may be a small diameter reference....something like a 2828
The dial looks captivating. I hope the rest turns out OK.
Yeah, this looks like a 30-32mm. But if you have a small wrist it could be ok. And since it is rather “rustic” you could slap it on a leather Nato which would bulk it up a bit-I do that with some of my old Military watches and it makes them wear larger.
I think the case is to sharp for that
GC could be worn through but could equally be dirt or shadows, which I think is more likely. But as stated above, the hour markers are worryingly large if that's meant to be a full-size dial.
Red highlights where it looks to me like the gold has worn away. This looks textbook to me.
Also inside lugs.
All I know is, from lug to lug it is 4,3cm.
The crown is worn but looking to the size, it is totally different to a 2828.
So what do you think? What made you gamble on it and what are you hoping for/expecting?
I really like the dial, but as mentioned by a number of others it does seem small. Is the glass maybe the wrong size for the case? Will be interesting to see the details about it once you get it delivered. Fingers crossed.
Though I can't say whether this is a good buy or not, I don't understand all this fuss about the case being small...
34-35mm watches is about the threshold for most modern wearers on the small side. If this is the midsized case then its around 30-32.. which is very small, a woman size from a modern viewpoint. But as I said earlier, I have a few 32mm that I wear on nato or military style straps and I can pull it off. But most men, even ones that love vintage watches won't wear anything under a 33.
Thank goodness for that. Otherwise, there would be nothing left to hunt!
