The jewels offered in this sale are the result of several years of search.
This one is one the few offered with a reserve price (much lower than its value).
Shipment cost is a bit higher than other ones, due to the extra insurance cost.
Good packagings and quick shipments
Dealer since many years, vintage watches represent about 50% of my activity. Antiques another 50%

I do confirm that I made a confusion between two items (what should never happen) and confirmed I would completely assume my mistake.
I am absolutely sorry for this and I have accepted your proposal that is clearly over the official rules. I show you that I am more than honnest.
May I say that you could have take contact with me before this public feed-back ? Many things can find a solution with a good communication...
But I clearly made a mistake and I assume !
I have never never seen such a gorgeous thin watch such as this one. The delivery was very quick as well. Very happy bunny. Thank you!
