Violet 1553s

I wrote a long time ago about a particularly attractive dial failure that happened on some cal 15 Carreras and Monacos, where the blue dial had faded/aged/changed/whatever to violet:;id=37068

The first part of this post has a side by side of Monacos I borrowed from another post on here (I think it might have been made initially by Shaun) showing the difference between the two:;id=61198

I put in a speculative bid as much to keep track of it as anything, but it went quite low in the end. If someone here managed to buy, you did well!
