    OP contacted me by PM already - as Apollonaught says not a vintage piece but a mid 1990s modern interpretation of the 1940s/1950s Premier, based on an ETA/Valjoux b7750; the original Navitimer that bears no resemblance whatsoever to this watch was launched in 1954, not the 1930s ;)

    watch looks correct and in decent shape, price is way too high (typically sell between 1.2-1.5k max)

    Edit: OP just beat me re that PM ;)

    Sorry, you guys, but there's no way that that watch has a Valjoux 7750. The way the totalizers work, I wouldn't even be surprised if it had a quartz movement but when looking at it from the side, the distinctly lower crown in relation to the pushgers shows that it has a module on top of an ordinary automatic movement. I.e. a Cal. ETA 2894 or some other module (Dubois-Depraz?) on probably an ETA 2892. Either way, a dial side modular chronograph.

    Don`t be sorry,A question if i may,can the typical sale(1.2 to 1.5k) price of the watch in question be justified realizing it has a dial side modular movement as opposed to a v7750 ,in your opinion.?
