    P.S. According to my sources, serial number 207200 dates this watch to 1942, not 1940, as so many of these cal 59s are often described.

    Low estimates IMHO.

    I wonder what it'll go for?

    Kind regards

    Default On closer inspection ....

    ... is that an early (Cal 321) Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch centre sweep second hand on that Glashutte?

    Hmmmm, certainly looks like one to me.

    Kind regards
