    That seems just a little on the high side, IMHO. There are quite a few of these still around. The movt is an Aegler, and they owned part of the company at the time, along with Gruen. Historically speaking, a good example of an important watch, although the hands may not be correct. Maybe a Rolex expert will chime in.
