Re: Carrera 1158 Bargain at Hôtel des Ventes de Genève

: There were a few condition issues including:
: - an inscription on the caseback
: - the 12 o'clock hour marker had apparently been reattached to the
: dial
: - the plate had worn from the crown and pushers
: - there was a small dent to the side of the case

Thanks for this info Andrew. I could see that the dial was a bit messed up (12 marker and the date window insert). A big dent would have taken me off of the watch. Scarce as it is condition is everything.
