You provide a good illustration of how different types of watches perform in the auction market. There are the ones that are "new to the market", having come from a family or collector, but not previously seen in the market. Then there are the ones that get passed around, from dealer to dealer, from eBay to auction house, etc.
I had not tracked this particular watch, but even without the detailed "tracking" it looked tired and showed some weak work on the dial.
: originally a repainted dial with modern green lume on dial &
: hands, replaced with original now. This watch has done the
: rounds and is very well noted now!
: Result reflected this and indeed case in poor shape originally with
: religious engraving on the back case.
