As regular readers may have guessed from the lack of updates this week, I'm now posting in 'catch-up' mode, so please accept my apologies if these threads are updated slightly out of chronological order. ;)

The 5-day Italian eBay auction for that well-worn and botched 7A38-6070 ended mid-week, selling for 71 Euros after 14 bids.

While I remember, a somewhat belated update on that well-worn 7A38-6070, which sold back in January for 71 Euros. Turns out the buyer was erstwhile forum member 'Ketap' (Carlo). In June, he posted photos in a couple of threads on (The first photo is a crop from the second.)

From the excessive wear to the case and bezel, it's obviously the same 7A38-6070. Either he or his watchmaker has fitted a replacement movement, but with white day / day wheels, rather than the correct black backgrounds. Looks like he was unable to source the correct crown* and for want of anything closer, appears to have fitted one off a brown coated 7A38-6020. Carlo describes it as 'shabby chique' [sic] (chic). Personally, I'm inclined to agree with the first word. :P
