Re: Looks Like a Bargain at $6,000

Bernard read my mind. I do think it's priced to perfection. It's certainly not for me.

It comes down to an aesthetics issue. If you refurbish the case (laser weld and lap), the bezel won't look right. If the case was strong and unpolished, but still dinged up, then the bezel might look okay.

If it was a little cheaper it might be worth getting the case refurbished and sticking an aftermarket insert on it until you find a better one.
