    Greetings,

    As you guys know I'm looking for good polerouter, and I found this.
    please let me know what you think. Thank you!

    Is there anyone can tell me if I should worry about the case back?

    thank you!

    His / her English is bad and shipping is only 50 bucks... hmmmm.... Personally I would put that much towards something (DateJust) else but that's just me.

    How much would you like to pay for shipping? Danish posts best insured product would cost 43usd worldwide wide, and they have a reputation for being expensive. I didn't know English skills were somehow connected, to the quality of a watch.

    Looks legit to me. The lugs are over-polished for my taste, but the condition is otherwise ok.

    Ok, I will rephrase, the watch may be able to be had for less money, less shipping and a better description, from another seller.

    Thank you Dan, and my other question is about the case back. I saw some marks maybe due to winding. Do you think it will be a problem?

    As I said, it looks ok. I don't know what you mean by winding.

    He means this picture below; Which clearly shows that the micro rotor has been robing on the back of case. Likely needs to be looked at by a professional and serviced; but that is true for all vintage watches.

    Those marks are caused by the rotor rubbing against the caseback. This is a sign that the movement needs a service.

    Movement looks to be in better than average condition. Fix the rotor issues and this looks like a very nice watch.
