The listing price wouldn’t surprise me that much if the watch were original and mint. But that would only be the case if a) the bracelet (and end links) were correct and original, and b) there were no damage on the dial. The bracelet is clearly a replacement. And the minute track has several weak areas (most notably between 6:00 and 7:00). Also, the hour hand looks like a replacement (lume mismatch). So, IMO, that asking price is aspirational (at best ;-).

Interesting daywheel. What language is it?

I never noticed that, I think I was still stunned by the price!

It had me flummoxed, but it's Thai, or so said in this thread:

Interesting. The £1200 asking price... seller is dreaming I think, which is why there aren't too many buyers for it ... slightly beaten up case, non-original (though Stelux?) bracelet... That eBay one is serial 908860 which puts it in the right kind of range, and there was a theory about the Thai day wheel on

(6) Let's talk about the history of BROWN 6139-6010 | Page 2 | The Watch Site

... linking back to the Thong Sia distributor who I suspect commissioned the brown dials in the first place. It's funny; we might think £1200 is a lot of cash for such a rare Bruce Lee, but if that was a silver PROOF 6139-6000 you'd be beating people off with a stick at double that amount :p
