Re: Really nice
In Response To: Really nice ()

: I do agree the albino dials are beautiful- much more subtle and
: elegant than the obvious panda though I know it is heresy to say
: so. But I would not class them as very rare. All 60s Carreras
: are pretty rare but I do t think these models are as rare as
: pandas or pulsation dials, etc

based on what I have seen over the past twenty years, the silver dial is more common than the the other variations.
The least common is the very hard to find eggshell version, which IMO is the best looking Carrera. Personally Ive seen the silver dials 2x more frequently than the all black dial, and maybe slightly less than the reverse panda...but its hardly the rarest of the Carreras. Regarding the hands, I'm afraid they are not original. Regardless its a beauty.
