    OK except a scratch on the bottom of the case that was not mentioned into product description making me doubting it is in solid ref gold as described - looks more like a painted or plated -

    Response by seller
    Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.
    Dear Pierre,
    it is pretty impossible to describe everything, what I always do (even in this case) is to take a pic of every detail: in this case 63 pics !
    This said, the watch is used, even if in very good condition and any (small) scratch can be easy polished.
    No doubt at all that that the watch (case) is 18kt gold, being hallmarked 18K 0,750 (see the 2x detail pics).
    Yours was a good catch, being the same watch on Chrono24 quoted between 2.490 and 3.640 !
    Kind regards
    Allout
