    They are still dropping, 10k or below for a bad one, 13-15k for a good one and 20k for the best of the best. Facebook groups is surprisingly where most of these actually get sold.

    I like the look of the power reserve watch at the end. Interesting that it has a way of locking the winding. It avoids more parts or a clutch in the power reserve complication as seen in automatic...

    I can't ID that from the top using my books or the advanced search on ranfft. If you can get the dial and hands off and take a picture of the dial side I should be able to ID it.

    You can't easily check if it is or not without opening the watch. De magnetisers can be available cheaply but if used wrongly will make the watch worse. The decent de magnetisers like the Elma one...

    This 0.2 bar difference isn't even remotely close to the vacuum pressure you would test a Rolex at for example. I...

    If the original tube is threaded you can use a reverse threaded tool to remove it if it isn't splined like modern Rolex tubes. Or if it won't come out broach it out.

    Really depends, some of these work by just having a compression between the screen and contact board. This can be cleaned and that sometimes works.

    Wonder how it would compare to an Audi R8 for fun weekend driving.

    Also do the missile silo tour! It's a hell of a long drive out, but so worth it. Amazingly interesting and if you aren't already, it will put you off nuclear missiles for life.

    When was it last serviced?
