Provenance, condition, box and papers - this is the collection of one owner, each piece was acquired as follows:

1. ref. 2185F-1540-73
WG Flyback LE xx/50 blue dial bracelet – from auction, no box, no papers
condition: Very fine plus - surface scratches on bezel edge between upper lugs; light scuffs and surface scratches on bracelet links where contact would be made with desk. White gold "scratches" differently than rose gold, so there are fewer swirls, but more "dimples" on leading edges

asking $12,000 OBO





2. ref. 2185F-1142M-71
SS Flyback LE xx/99 opaline dial bracelet – from private collector, box and papers included
condition: Very fine plus - light scratches on bezel edge between upper lugs; light scuffs on bracelet links where contact would be made with desk. Some nicks on lower left lug just around spring bar hole, typical of any lug where the strap or bracelet has been changed or removed. Other lugs mint.

asking $6000 OBO




3. ref. 2185F-3630M
RG Flyback LE xx/250 black dial rubberized strap rg deployant – from private collector, box and papers included
condition: near mint minus - light surface swirls only, which can easily be polished out, typical of a regularly worn rose gold case - just wearing it under a sleeve will result in these surface swirls, just more or less, all only on surface (fingernail can't feel the scratches)

asking $9000 OBO - on hold




4. ref. 2185F-3642M-55
RG Flyback LE x/99 (very nice number!) white dial brown/tobacco arabics brown croc strap rg deployant – new from AD, box and papers included

5. ref. 1186-1427-53
YG split-seconds classic case solid back croc strap yg tang and buckle – from private collector, box and papers included
