Having spent a fair amount of time counting the teeth on the Autavia 2446C bezels (11 versus 18 per hour increment), and studying the geometry of the teeth on the first execution and second execution screw-back Autavias (straight-cut versus angled), the first thing I ask is why is this one "toothless" / smooth? This bezel looks strange to me.
: Seen this?
: It looks great but why does the case back look polished/worn? Do
: you think the watch has been restored? Is it possible to find
: NOS bezel inserts or is someone recreating them? Or is it really
: a mint and original watch?
