$27,000 for "Big Subs" at Antiquorum

Regarding the "Big Subs" Autavia, Reference 2446, second execution hands -- a friend who inspected the watch in Geneva told me that the relume on the dial and hands was pretty sloppy.

Seem to me that it is generally OK for the hands to be relumed, but when the dial is relumed in a poor manner, the value of the watch is greatly diminished.

Does anyone know how the Autavia with the Orange test dial performed? The Autavia Ref 7763 SN with the test dial did well at $27,750 (final price).

Strange that it takes Antiquorum so long to post results . . . not exactly the transparency that we should expect in 2021!!



: Mixed results at Antiquorum:

: 2446 I/2 at about 27K $ incl. fees - battered bezel and worn case -
: relumed?
: Cheers from Switzerland
