    I would guess in the $600-900 range. Probably a little more desirable than the last one from the same seller:

    There are a few issues with this one.. The dial is not original, it has been redialed. Also the sub-seconds hand and the crown are not original.

    I don't think much of it. Looks like play school is busy this time of year. Lots of attention ? Let them have it ...

    Is anyone pitching for this one? I'm going in and out of being tempted, but decided to hold out for one with the engraving still visible on the caseback and a cleaner movement. Still, the dial looks pretty good, so I'm sure it's a good buy.

    Nice! But is it just me or the crystal has no date window?

    I've always considered it something of a bonus with an original trapezoid crystal on it :whistling: Plus I'm not really sure I would even prefer it.

    I personally like how the window highlights this watch's funky fonts. But that's just me. Take note that this example has a chip / dent on the lower part of the case (right after 6).

    I love the fonts on the polerouters. Half of my love for them stems from the fonts ::love:: Wouldn't it be wonderful if a huge NOS stash of crystals with trapezoid magnifiers were found?

    Agree! I've been trying to find out what those fonts are called (the dates on these polerouters and the numbers on the p-sub Gen 2) for quite some time now.

    Looks like a redial. The minute markers are inconsistent (i.e 5s, 3s). The subdial hands are also inconsistent from each other.

    It's real. A very late game UG. Not desirable at all.
