I found it on Amazon and the Bay. $1790.00 😀

Listed as a 6139-8029 per the case back too. Lol

"BUY WITH CONFIDENCE KNOWING EACH TIMEPIECE GOES THROUGH THE SAME RIGOROUS 31-POINT INSPECTION. REST ASSURED ONLY AUTHENTIC PARTS STRAIGHT FROM THE MANUFACTURER ARE USED."

They didn't say the parts had to be from the same watch!

They also did not say who the manufacturer was.

I really do not expect to see something like this on Amazon but I guess it is worth their time to list there with that kind of markup.

Lot of money for it but...

At least it looks like a mash of original parts I guess & original A sweep so assume the A mvt is in there.

Worst bit for me is the round case but you could sell the yellow chapter for more than a black, sell the bezel & get the correct (not later like this) bezel

It’s a lot of money but watch the TVS Instagram page as there’s an original (head only) on there at $2kAU currently at auction finishing today.

And the crown is from a 6138 and the case appears to be polished and the lume beckons that water was a visitor for a while...

But I agree, this might be salvageable depending on the case. The rest of it could be made right. There is a really nice version from Malaysia that they want $2200US. Tough prices for these.

What's really cool is that the tachys don't line up so you can take your pick of measurements!
