    I don't think anybody takes these estimates seriously, do they?

    And regarding the straight lug SM 300, it wouldn't surprise me to see that humble 165.014 go for big bucks....plenty of people looking and availability is not really increasing. It also comes with a 3K 7912/6 combi.....

    FWIW - that estimate is probably where it is because of the missing crown / non-running condition and slightly worn appearance. No, it won't go that low, but it also won't fly. People averse to projects won't be bidding on it.

    I don't see any mention if the 165.014-64 Bezel is original or not?

    From personal inspection? Is it stated somewhere? Nearly all early SM300 bezels look original until you magnify them and discover otherwise.

    Point well taken, just from blowing it up on the auction website. I queried them, waiting to hear.

    How do you know if it's original or not?

    I think the fact that its isn't RARE or VERY RARE, like every other watch consigned, explains the low estimate.

    In straight lug world, it seems that anything goes.
    There's no doubt in my mind that the SM300 will make it's estimate and the 'project' Ed White will be close on it's tail.

    Knoghtsbridge "believes" SM300 bezel original.

    Meaningless. I see they also have a '145.012-66 CB case' - that's a new reference to me!
