I found this great little watch listing (full of history!) that Iím going to take a look at tomorrow in person prior to purchase.
A few things that came up:
- The listing has been around for a year, possibly because nobody might be aware about the watch in the area
- Before the seller posted the movement pic, there was what looked like merely a screenshot of the same movement (as though from a website) and as soon as I told the seller that it looked like a screenshot, he immediately said ďI went to my watchmaker to have it openedĒ and replaced it with the picture that I uploaded here on this thread. Very sketchy. Also the quality of his pics of the watch differ from the movement pic
- Seller initially asked for $200, and said he would sell for $150 and I said that it would depend on the condition in person
What are all of your thoughts on this Benrus MIL-W-3818B? It looks genuine to me, and the movement (DR2F2 is correct) but the seller is just being sketchy about the movement pictures so I donít actually know if the picture of the movement is really from the watch. The lume on the hands also seem to have disappeared.
This is one of mine and my husbandís first forays into vintage watches, so would love to hear out some advice from you seasoned folks.
