    But then again, it's a small price to pay for the first watch with luminescent hands and hour markers ::facepalm2::

    I'd love to know how the jeweller managed to put a gas in the dial (not visible to the naked eye... :rolleyes::rolleyes:) and I am sure that finding correct endliks will be a breeze...

    Wow!! A possible "edit" from the seller could be:
    " Sorry for the Buy it now Price! The glue stuck to my finger and I couldn'r remove it from the pc keyboard while pressing 0 (zero) at the end of the Buy it now price! I had to scrub for 10 minutes to remove glue" :)

    there are so many facepalm moments in that description, I thought about dropping the obviously clueless owner an email just to try and give a few pointers, including their insane BIN price, but figured better to stay out of it.....

    I hate it when I remove things from an 85K watch to help out the watchmaker and then misplace them. Luckily most people use a leather strap

    Coincidence the minute hand covers the scratch? I guess if you don’t like you can just return due to inaccurate listing, brand is marked as invicta

    Do you think they'll accept $84,900 because of the missing pieces? :eek::eek: [so nervous!!!]

    Good morning!
    I chanced upon this watch with ref no 30703.
    Doesn’t seem to match the ref no convention for the second and third digit. Is it correct?

    The 5 digit convention doesn't apply to time only, although the first number still "works"
    This one looks good to me (at the right price) except the crown is obviously wrong

    Ah I see.. yeah the crown looks like it belongs to newer series. The starting bid for the watch is €500.
