The case is a rare one most are C cased, I have two of the 35mm
Thanks. You have two of the round 35mm? Any thoughts on the example in the link? I have requested for better pictures
I would want to see inside caseback
I have got to see this 'in the metal' next time we meet up!
It's in better condition than mine
That was my thought.
I don't agree that the price seems too good to be true; these are not in any way rare and neither is the finishing particularly high end.
I think he means that because the round case ones are rarer than the cushion case ones, and it's difficult to find one for less than $500 these days, that this one seems like more of a bargain.
Indeed. Do we have any consensus whether it is or isn't a franken - I'm not convinced quite yet and case back with a different case reference would be the start of that discussion.
Utterly no idea on the quality of the actual watch, TBH. I only glanced at the (very bad) photos accompanying the listing. It's not something I was going to jump at.
Thanks all and thank you @bgrisso for passing on this piece to me! It's a stunner!
I've got another interesting variant to share here - mine is a high serial number (115,xxx) C-case example with a slightly different dial, which is silver, and I don't think it's enameled. The numerals look very similar, but instead of being pressed from the back they appear to be applied. The seconds subdial is a little larger than the normal ones too, and features concentric circles. Additionally, the bottom of the dial is simply marked "Swiss" instead of "Swiss Made." It's a joy to wear, picture below. They aren't very good but I was really trying to highlight the differences in the subdial and the applied numerals.
Great price indeed but could it have been recased? Never seen a round one.
I just found this one, where the minute hand is not original. What do you think of the patina? It costs around 250 euro. Is that a good price?
These are not rare watches - I'd wait for a good one with all original parts (including a signed crown) and I believe that, with a bit of patience, you'll manage that for €250.
Does anyone know where I can buy a good FS?
Simple and classic!
