    Favre Leuba Sea Chief for a song

    Got this piece from India and it runs like a top. I've been reading to stay clear but this little guy is a gem. I lucked out.

    ... did you look inside it yet? Verify the movement isn't fake.

    No need to verify.

    Another promotional thread for Bombay-specials (shortly after your first attempt where you had 'won' a Favre Leuba redial from a children's stamping set). You must be a very bad singer that you are happy to get a 10 Cents value for a song.

    The regulator position doesn't inspire great confidence.

    I collect mainly FL, an original unmolested example can be had with some patience and a keen eye. Ok you usually pay more but then again it’s worth it.

    Since this sounds like encouragement to purchase Bombay Specials, it is not even the case that I want to give it a shelling. It is my duty to give it a solid barrage.

    Why, it's hard not to notice that. Had bad feelings before I've clicked on this thread, and the view that presented itself after doing so hurts more than if I'd have rubbed a jalapeno pepper into my eyes.

    Looking at the regulator and the condition of the centre wheel, that's unlikely.

    Save for the fact of it shining like cojones del perro ​(as cases tend to do after being treated with Cape Cod cloth), I see nothing even remotely gem-like about it.
