Or, you find something hidden away in some obscure auction thinking no one else has seen it, only for it to go nuts in the last 30 seconds - - - heart breaking!!!
The whole lot went for $385. I sat on it at 250 for a while knowing it needed obvious stuff and not knowing what it is like internally. Good Luck to the buyer, some pics when you finish please.I don't know what price that went for ?
IMO needed to be cheap as lots of work needed before it looked half decent, crystal, gaskets, service ?, poor insert, poor dial and hands which would look a lot better after a pro relume.
A lot of work and a few pennies needed.
Sometimes the bargains can be little money pits and still not look great at the end of the day unless your one of these collectors that likes "wabbie" or in this case grunge.
Unless your a bottom feeder like me it REALLY does make a lot of sense to buy something that is in good condition to start with.
