    New to watches in general, but very interested in getting a vintage watch. Let me know your thoughts on this. Is it authentic? Any specific questions I should be asking the seller? Appreciate the help. Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 10.08.54 PM.png Screen Shot 2018-07-31 at 10.09.07 PM.png

    Looks pretty good in general. The movement seems nice and clean, dial should be fine.
    It all depends on the asking price.

    How much is it?

    I'd be happy to pick that up, the movement is based on the legendary Caliber 600/601, the case has gentle wear and the dial and handset are in good condition.

    The crown is an incorrect replacement but the correct style or something very like it should still be available.

    That's twice what it's worth, maybe more.

    I agree with the others, the price is almost double of what i'm willing to pay.
