Now a 105.012 is not so rare, they come up regularly at auction and on Ebay, as well as the FS section of OF……but not the -64.
For those of us anoraks who aspire to the full set of full set of 28 production references, this is a very rare bird. I have seen only one other for sale.
This particular watch sparked a debate about the lume, and originality of the hour and minute hands. I have to say this watch looks so good on arrival I am not sure I mind!This is a prime example where the choice is to own this one or not, rather than is this in good enough condition. The fact is this is the only -64 I have seen to buy – if I want one, then its this one or none.
The dial and case are in exceptional condition and I have not yet opened it up to check the movement. One thing I did not notice until arrival is that the crown is the wrong size. The bezel is pretty shocking to the left.
The other thing of note is that the box and papers are almost certainly nothing to do with the watch – the papers are not filled.
These shots were done quickly on the Iphone and so not the best.
