For the 'straight' 3525 the market "spoke"!
I know how much you paid yours and I (we) know what price reached the one similar than yours
in better condition at auction a few weeks later (sorry for your loss, you should have listen to me)
For the 3 CROC I now changed my mind since I met someone (he will recognise himself
as he reads VRF but never post) that gave me the full story of these dials with
names, dates and details. I revised my judgement about 3 CROC.
ps : you can still keep your straight 3525 dial and sell me the case !-)
