Makes me wonder: does anyone fall for low estimates anymore?
Beware of the Saltarello

A number of us have been discussing the fact that the applied Maltese Cross is missing from the dial, yet it is not mentioned in the Sotheby's condition report.  You have to wonder what happened to the watch to cause that - major shock, bad service, someone's bad idea?

Lot 154 and 258 seem like a bargain considering what they are.
Some very nice candy in there

I like the Saltarello, more if it had it's cross on the dial. And those MRs! I have never yet bid at a watch auction. Someday gonna set up that absentee bd or register for online bidding! Then the real trouble begins! Good luck to ths bidding, I know a couple of guys are in for some of these.... Please share experience and photo's. Best Gary
