I have just released on Youtube a video discussing this watch. It is a very appealing 145.012 that I bought from ebay, possibly over paying for the time.
I bought this watch about 12 years ago, and since buying it, I have discovered many issues that it has that I did not know it had when I bought it.
As a result, I have learned a great deal from this watch, and it has saved me from many subsequent mistakes!
Frome the front it is a very attractive watch. However, there is a doubt raised by the lume material and in my opinion it is re lumed, although I did not think so at the time.
Looking at the movement, we see minor marks on the screws, but most importantly we see a colour difference between the number bridge and the other copper bridges.
Here is a link to the video where I go into more depth:
