    advice needed regarding triple date Chronograph

    Hi all,
    I'm really keen to find and buy a triple date chronograph especially a Wakmann or Vulcain, I have found this one on Ebay:

    Beautiful Wakmann / Breitling with the famous Valjoux 730 / 72C | eBay
    hash=item35bd165057

    Has anyone ever seen this Dial before as I haven't also the back looks etched rather than engraved, is this right for a watch of this age?
    below is a list of questions I have asked with the sellers responses. Does the amount of replaced parts de-value the watch. he states SOLD AS IS would this put you off? and finally does the price seem right?
    Thanks for any help!

    have any Parts been replaced, hands, crystal, dial, etc? = crystal,stem,crown,gasket,strap,fully polished,adjusted sweep second(just last week)because not exactly by the #12.
    what is the service history of the watch? = never done a fully service ,just oiled.
    do all the pushers work? = yes
    do all the chronograph hands reset to Zero and do they do this smoothly and quickly? = yes
    do the date windows turn OK? = yes
    can you list any other faults or damage no matter how small? = as show in the listed photo , sold AS-IS

    Things that make me personally nervous about that auction:
    * Only 128 feedback, even at 100%.
    * And the fact the watch is coming out of the Czech Republic.

    Others will chime in with their own opinions however.
    I've got more Converse sneakers than watches, but it is a close race.

    thanks for your reply, what do you think about the etched back of the watch? do you think thats right for a watch from the 70's?
