Thanks John, but you are makiing an assumption to think that I was interested in buying this watch because of its beauty or mechanical uniqueness. There are numerous reasons why I could have wanted this watch. I actually was interested because I am a value shopper. Like most, I love a good deal. I thought this may have been a buying opportunity. Unfortunately I don't have the keen eye, experience, or expertise of some of the gentlemen on this forum.
I have garnered numerous watches over the years, I feel very uncomfortable boasting about my prize possessions, but I have a Rolex 6538 albeit it has a service dial, I have a 18k Rolex 8171, I have a Rolex 6542 with a Bakelite bezel amongst others.
