    Hi,

    This is international forum :) What currency is 4500?

    Hi and welcome
    We are not in general terms meant to give evaluations here or try to sell items.
    What I would say, is I personally would not pay or recommend to pay $4500 for that piece.
    I have a lot of concern on the quality of the movement, appears a lot of dirt and worse rust due to water entering the case.
    Even the metal dial has water (rust) damage.

    Just my personal opinion
    Regards

    I would be inclined to agree. 4500 US$ for that watch, unserviced and with a fair chance of issues sounds good. The corollary is that I would never pay 4500$ for that watch the state it is in. However, don't take our word for it since we aren't experts. Do some research into what exact model it is and what that model usually goes for - if it does actually go for 20000$ in good state, your 4500$ suddenly sounds a little paltry. I doubt it, though - but once more: make sure yourself! Good luck.

    I did have it posted on eBay but pulled it to decide if I wanted to get it repaired

    Have you thought more about what you are going to do with the watch?
