This watch looks good to me..... but I've never held a GMT PCG before this.
Any advice on parts being original or period correct?
Does the case look legit?
I have not yet opened the back.

This watch is either really amazing or an amazing waist of my money.....Please let me know.

I have one the exact same age, same exclamation dial. It all looks good 15k usd would be a steal and up to 20k a fair deal. Could check if rotor is original butterfly or changed out.

...on those papers--you've got yourself a winner with a capital W.
Congrats--awesome early 60s example with lots of apparent provenance.
Enjoy & best,

I sanded down the insert to give it that faded look.

Wow - what an amazing example! Congrats. I would have left the insert as original and bought another faded one as a spare option, though. Fantastic set!
