As we all know the sellers on the Japanese auctions often list watches as "junk" if there is a problem at all, I think it is there way of saying sold "asis" ?

Well today this was a small part of a package that arrived today as "junk", it is as you can see in pretty nice condition but it did have a minor problem which was the stem had come unscrewed from the crown, a quick sort and it is running really superb, dident come with a bracelet so trying it on this lumpy for now until a BOR comes along(actually wears quite well).

The price of these seems to up and down like anything.

Indeed they are classy watches. If I could find nice 60's watches I'd sell all mine and go vintage.
