Default flea market sighting

i go to the local flea market and don't go for the watches because i know there really aren't any to be found. this weekend i actually saw something worth "looking" at in the middle of a seller's case:



i overheard him telling someone it was $250, marked down from $500 retail! i guess that's sort of true, but still not low enough for a flea market sale for me.

one other seller had a 7548 that was a bit more worn than I'd like; so, i didn't even inquire. do you guys see a lot of offerings at the flea mkt?

7T - I did not ask

Had a google for the 5606 and it gets a poor review on the movement so I have not returned.

The 5606's are amazing movements. They only have one achiles heel, the day quickset. But on a fleemarket you can check if that works

The movement functioned after a few flicks, quick set worked and the day dial is Kanji.
