    but i realised in many examples i've seen online, it seems like a common problem just to different degrees of severity, even the one from mentawatches also has slight rubbing on the edges of the rotor

    Exactly, lume is not clean. + crown is replacement + chrono hour hand do not match with the other 2 sub register hands.

    In the end, that makes a lot of wrong stuff for 24k usd... Well, if It is the price now...

    Sorry, but the hands in the hour subs are allways shorter to the extend that the subdials are overlapping. Otherwise they could touch eachother and cause damage.
    Best regards and thanks for the nice discussion !

    Of course but I meant hand's width, not length.

    Thin hands were supposed to be fitted on mk1 and thick hands on mk2/3. At least all 3 should be the same

    I am a bit confused now, I thought you meant the one josephgsy posted and not the one sold by mentawatches.

    Thanks that´s very kind ! I just try how I can post some nice pics. I think I need a bit time to figure out or perhaps need help from my son :thumbsdown:

    I promise I will post watches within the next days and be aware to see nice Zenith and others.

    Yes, Sir ! For your Entertainment or further value discussions my beautiful A386 MK1 (538Dxxx). The watch was originally delivered to Austria and I had the opportunity to acquire it from a close watch friend

    Wow so many amazing pieces! A386 is a grale that I think I will never own, but I also like my A384 with tropical subdials.

    I don’t know the right value of the early El Primero, but I think they are fantastic and probably very undervalued

    Well back to the subject. Look at Christies, Sothebys, Phillips for results of what these pieces sold for it will cover a 5-10 year period. Ebay is not a good judge for expensive watches. As for the pictures it is not a requirement to show pictures on the forum. Few come available because other collectors think they are more valuable also and tend to feel it is not worth selling at this level.

    I think Zuke is right on, other than I think that the uber rare A3818 will be priced higher, especially in good condition.
