    Yeah Bob Maron is the seller. The price isn't a surprise.

    Tri-Compax on eBay:

    [​IMG]

    Thoughts? Dial printing looks misaligned (notably the 9 and 12 o'clock subdials), handset doesn't seem right (seconds had for sure, the leaf hands also don't look like LG leaf hands, too wide and I haven't seen them in blue before), and the crown doesn't match the case. Anything else stand out?

    Edit: Also, the five second increments on the 9 o'clock subdial seems off, are there any examples like that?

    Yep, I'm playing the "learn to spot the redials" game on eBay. Universal in particular seems to get quite a few, most of which are pretty bad. Frankly, if the dial is in good condition I sort of expect it to be a redial at this point.

    Could'a been a good redial, but the redialer just didn't give a damn

    it is a beauty, the price however is a little optimistic for a small case. I could go with it if it was an oversize.

    Will have to get back to you on that one as it's in the safe at the office... The case back is polished and the crown is not original.

    Here's the case back. No ref as it's on the inside.
