    The UG font is a bit unusual. No 31 on the date ring. Radial numbers on the seconds subdial. No 3/6/9 on the minutes subdial. Anyhow my gut said it was probably OK, but I didn't research. It seems like others had doubts as no one was bidding on it for a long time, and it didn't go very high.

    None of that concerns me. What hurt it was dial condition.

    I didn't study it in detail but I think it was just a bit tired with a pretty worn bezel and grubby registers on the dial.

    Mint examples seem to command huge prices but prices drop off fairly quickly where condition is not perfect. I think that probably applies across the whole vintage watch market.

    you're right, the best is better, even more now that it's become rare.
    thanks for your answer

    It’s a bit chewed up. My bigger issue with these is that nice V72 like this are out there for less.... 51404695-F11D-4952-AACE-C54035DD102C.jpeg

    You might even pay more if you replace the coronet with a fleur de lis.
