Milepost, Landmark, Bellwether, Herald -- $45,000 Seems OK
In Response To: So: EUR 41k ()

I will be writing more about this watch / this auction.

The "elevator version" of my view: We have seen somewhere between six and ten of these models -- first execution screw-back Autavia, three register (Reference 2446), with all lume hands. Positives for this one were the relatively good condition of the dial and hands, and what might have been the original finish on the case. Negatives were a seller who did not communicate much or provide a detailed description, the lack of a serial number or photos of the movement, and a badly beaten bezel.

I believe that a very strong sample of this model (on the physical level), with a fully engaged seller providing full information and images, would sell above the $50,000 mark.



: New landmark? Or is it a one off?
