Looks Nice / Rust Worries Me
In Response To: Carerra ()

For me, this is a favorite version of the Carrera -- three regsiters; nice clean version of the dial (no tachy, decimal minutes, etc.). The case looks nice.

my concern would be the rust in the movement. seller indicates that the movement is aged and and shows some rust; I would have a watchmaker study the photograph, and tell you what he thinks of it; marks on the dial may also indicate that some water (or something) got inside.

seller has good feedback and seems to be a watch professional . . . maybe see if you can learn more about the condition of the movement . . . he seems to be open to requests for additional information.

thanks for posting the message, and good luck with your decision / bid / purchase.
