Bezel / Pricing

I believe that the bezel is correct.

You ask what I would pay for this one. That's a tough question, and you may not like the answer. If I was certain that I could locate the correct crown and pushers, then I would (a) deduct the price of restoring the Autavia (using those pieces) and any other servicing that it might need, from (b) my estimated market value of around $1000 to $1200 (for the correctly restored and fully serviced piece), and that's what I would pay.

If you think that the estimated value might be on the low side, that's what I see for the two-register Autavias, compared with the three-register guys. If this one was "correct", fully serviced and had that third register, then it might fetch $1400 to $1600.

. . . all these being my own very rough estimates, in a market that has been a bit jumpy (on the upside).
