    Just picked up this little guy over the weekend

    I was just bumming around town, and came upon this 6106-8060 Sealion M110 from April '68:



    The problem is, besides the imperfect crystal, is that it doesn't run. So that means a trip to the watchmaker. I've tried to find sale-price info for it online, and came up with a $150 sales price on SCWF a few years ago, to an as-is parts watch eBay sale of $15.

    Any thoughts?

    I'm thinking of selling it (but of course I couldn't pass it up), having just bought a black sawtooth, and sort of being at the mythical point of having "too many" watches...

    Thanks!

    I say keep it for a while, and when the time is right you'll make the watch right. The crystal can be polished, and it's probably a simple mov't fix.

    Classics like this are worth the wait. (I'm waiting for a bellmatic from '68 to arrive from Spain.)

    Dont act too hastily, or you'll be looking for a new one in the future.

    I wouldn't be too concerned about the retail for your not gonna' sell it!

    Enjoy it, as it is beautiful.

    Congrats,

    Rice

    Rice, you may have talked me into keeping for a while.

    I'll have to go back through my collection and pick something else to sell...
