I was in a pawn/junk store yesterday that had one old rotating display with mostly seikos, citizens etc. BUT, hidden towards the bottom was this Baume & Mercier solid 18k. It had the original strap but it was in awful shape so I had my watch guy (former Baume & Mercier employee in NY) replace the strap, double check the movement and replace the battery. He also put the original buckle on the new strap. This is my best find in some time as I'm in it less than the cost of a nice Citizen. Just thought I'd share. I LOVE the hunt!
