Thank you one and all, however asking this fourm about "that" watch is a little bias and the responses were expected.
You all realize that I would also have to carry my old Patek half-hunter pocket watch so I would know what time it is.
This certainly meets what everyones highest standards of "buying what speaks to you the most" as I sure can't see it.
Now the ungentlemanly part of any deal, what do I pay for it? I'm looking at a pre-owned 95% from a honest dealer.
I would be greatful for your input via PM, of course. Best, Miki P.S. This one really sings all my favorite oldies to me!
