I would go for it! Yes I have that identical one but mine is the mid-size!
Is this one full sized or?? What he he/she asking for it?
IF it's not too much and YOU happen to win it....... I will GLADLY purchase it from you! Seriously!

The main concern with that watch is the bezel insert....... they are IMPOSSIBLE to find so that part MUST be in good shape! Parts wise you can get parts for them.
As I mentioned I am very interested!
IF I were to get that one I'd sell my Mid-size in a heartbeat!

The specs say 37.5 to crown, like the Rolex GMT......

So yours is the quartz version....any idea of the movement.....I read it is swiss movement inside.....

and two bracelets. The photo shows it is on a zodiac clasp version! The first auction find shows the bracelet without the zodiac symbol on  the clasp....

I just might bid on this boxed version, ending Saturday but a bit more money.....

Thian... You should try and pick up a few more of those gems from the Japanese auctions. I would pass on that one to let Rene get it 'cause I know how much he loves these things. I would gladly get a quartz or auto version of that watch...
