FS: PRICE DROP Astin Gilt Dial Spillman Chronograph Val 22 38mm

I'm dropping the price on this to move it for another piece. Up for sale is my 1940's Astin Spillman case Gilt Dialed chronograph with a Valjoux 22 ticking away freshly serviced. This is just a stunning example of a Spillman Chrono. Beautiful original and untouched Gilt two tone dial with original hands with matching patina with all radium lume intact. Case might have been lightly polished in the past, but I don't think so because its got all the right angles in the right places. Original pushers and crown. This is the real 38mm case (without crown) with full markings on the back and the dust cover is in place under the snap back case (less common than the screw back case). I just had this serviced and its running great. Selling on a high quality German Milanese strap and will include a nice tan leather strap as well. I always wanted one of these rare pieces and I'm just not bonding with it the way I had thought I would. I guess 40mm is my sweet spot although this wears large and has killer presence. The watch dial is branded Astin, but the movement is unsigned. These are pretty rare and this is all original in amazing condition with a black and bronze gilt dial. Additional pictures available. You can see my feedback on Ebay - DKYS and IG - chronosandkatanas, feel free to ping me at either with questions or email directly. Asking $5,500 (Now Reduced to $4,400 NET + Shipping). Price for Chronocentric only Please scroll through photos and video. Might consider direct trades and trades up Thanks
