Would like to share this my new additions humbly

It was actually back from 2008 after knowing from good friend Mark who showed his nice 6782. After seeing the pictures of 6782, I used the time to do some homeworks, understanding the model a bit. It was finally realized that 6782 was only produced in yellow gold in 100 to 300 pieces only and I decided that I am not trying to hunt one as I am not a 'yellow gold watch guy'. Also, I do not believe I am able to find one luckily.

I did not follow up this much until recently.

There was a recent post from me that I saw a white gold 6782. It was actually offered to me by a shop that I used to know. I could not believe what I was looking at, and posting it asking for people's advice and comment whether white gold 6782 exists.

At the end, with the courage from all of you, and also the sharing from all of you, I finally made my commitment to purchase, and the watch is now with me end of last week.

Would like to share some dirty pictures that I made ..... hope you all do not mind.

Waiting patiently for this reveal...and it was worth it ;-) Are you considering reapplying the enamel color to the bezel? It appears there are traces of the old colors...can you tell what it was? Cheers,
I thought I saw the Thunderbird to die for...

Thank God I lived to see this one-Wow!

As always, wear in good health. Miki

The watch is not with me as I am travelling now but
06/15/2011 - 12:09

I remember the trace of possible enamel or luminous application is very light. I cannot tell whether it was washed out over the years. Regarding to your question, I would rather to keep it like this as I tend to keep it not colourful. Thanks again for your sharing so far which also helps me deciding to buy this.

Thanks again.

Great T-Bird! Congrats and may it tick away lucky times ;-) nt

Congratulation for your perseverance to find this rare piece. I can't find it in my few VC books, do you know which year it was created?

Hi Frankly, I am not sure when it was produced but
06/15/2011 - 12:14

for sure it would be produced in late 60 to early 70 along with other 6782. But I am not allowing me to let go this one to Switzerland for long time for certificate. Thus, would rather enjoy it first ....

Case number suggests 1970 or 71 (nt)
