    Yes, very underrated. I sold mine in response to a WTB - a minter, complete with everything from new, bracelet, strap, pencil holder box, leaflet etc. the complete kit.

    Excellent choice. IMO, as time goes on, this early version will be increasingly seen as the classic Bond Seamaster. Enjoy it.

    Totally understand. It looks to be a really nice watch and would be almost impossible to restore.

    I couldnít agree more. For me the only attraction is as an intriguing side story to the overall Moonwatch legend. Iíll still get one when they are readily available but doubt if Iíll ever wear it.

    Ok, thatís all gone to the dogs, big time.
    The remaining part of the year must focus on getting back to a net zero (increase) position and getting a few Ďprojectí watches completed.

    Thatís a Tissot Navigator Ref:45501. Thereís a very similar Omega, with a subtly different case, which would be more collectible/expensive. A very nice watch if you come across one.

    The lighter dials with contrasting sub-dials look a bit weird and the black ring doesn't help. However, I think the Moon, Mercury & Neptune versions look good overall. I could live with the Mars too.
