On sale today is a pretty good condition 5512 chapter ring 4 liner gilt from my personal collection. I don’t wear it enough and hence it’s for sale.
This is the earlier 4 liner 5512 version, with gloss gilt galavanised (reverse print) dial. The first 2 liners are gilt, where the SCOC is in silver print. Beautiful 2 tone which I personally find this feature extremely interesting. Dial condition is as per photo condition but bear in mind all photos are exaggerated as it’s oversized. Gilt dial is still glossy, though there are some marks but not visible unless light reflect directly on it. Have priced it appropriately.
Original lume still glow like it should but dies off quickly. Original flat hands set as well.
The bezel insert is a period correct fat font long 5, period correct flat hands set, and Swiss 7206, also correct stamped as 1962, rivet bracelet which has been tightened & restored.
Case has been polished by a Japanese ex-RSC watchmaker and this is NOT a recut or laser weld case. (I can show the entire conversation that I have with the watchmaker if need to). Case although polished, but extremely fat and great chamfers as it was originally in great shape before polish. Beautiful PCG crown guard as well.
Watch is made in 1962, which is all correct for all parts, etc.
Watch is serviced and pressure tested earlier this year.
So nothing to worry but to find a good owner to wear this.
