In Response To: Looks Like a Bargain at $6,000 ()

I agree the price is a fair.
If you can live with that case like Jeff says.
I am sure I couldn't. Of course we know the guys that can do miracles with a case.
But it will take time and a bit of money.
The biggest issue for me would be the bezel I think. If you have the case refurbished you also need a mint or much better bezel.
And these 1163 GMT bezels are crazy expensive. And hard to find. Then there is the pusher, maybe a service and you get a watch that isn't that cheap anymore.
So for me it's not a true no-brainer. The seller priced it so well it's a tough choice.
Just my opinion for what it's worth.
Good luck.
