expensive restauration project
« on: December 18, 2012, 12:04:37 pm »
Or am I too cheap?

To think I missed one at a local auction/sell  site, a black dialed automatic version for 150 euros...  :wtf

Ya know, I looked at that one but did not have a dial for that model. I see it as parts only and the price has already exceed that. Unless someone needs the parts, or HAS a dial for that model, that auction is for the fools.
Collecting Zodiacs is not for the meek; be an educated collector.

There would be no way I would pay more than $50 or $60 for that.  You have no idea what the dial side parts look like under there and you can see that the day, month, and moonphase dials are stained as well.  If those dial side parts are rusted and frozen, you are screwed.
