    And to think it's only 33.5 in case diameter!

    How did they possibly arrive at that?

    But a bigger problem, even for half the price, is all the dirt. I would be quite worried that there's wear around the winding stem or on other parts of the movement caused by it.

    I'm curious to see what happens to this one (though I suspect I know what will happen) pics too fuzzy to guage dial well, seems to have been there for a long time if memory serves:http://m.ebay.com/itm/131687935454

    I think the images are good when you zoom. Unless I'm missing something, I can't see anything wrong with it. I think the price was a bit higher before but the seller has lowered it. I've actually been a bit tempted.

    I too have been tempted. Amon other things, the caseback engraving sure is nice and crisp I view most of this stuff on my cellphone, so can miss a detail or two. Namely,on my small screen, I can't tell whether it's paint smudge between the D and A of DATE or whether just the poor resolution I'm viewing it in.
    Also, I don't have aa good sense of the colour of the dial - is it silver, cream. Something else? Less than 2 hours left, zero bids so far.

    it's pretty but a redial and probably not in its original style.

    there's a bunch of these pseudo-military redials across all brands of watches that come out of Bangkok. This one appears to have made its way to Germany.

    I'm looking at this piece and saw that the logo U is off centre off the crosshair and also the lume markers has a black circle on each.

    Found these a bit strange to be honest, anybody can confirm its okay?

    How come the broad arrow ones are always so much more worn than the more common ones?

    Seller has a good reputation. The case back has been polished and the light engraving and reference numbers have been lost. There is a replacement crystal without trapezoidal date magnifier. Otherwise looks OK to me.

    Thank you very much. What price range would this watch trade in?
