Yeah I think that exploding 23D was a mission for someone on this forum, I cannot recall....


Where is afire?

You guys almost gave me a heart attack! It's 23A I'm obsessed with. The description in the price list references an "extra heavy hand-made 18 kt. green gold case" and the price was $230. I'm sure the 18 jewel cal. 89 has much to do with the price, but for $230 in 1918, it simply must have been an all around spectacular watch.

I was actually watching that 23D, but ended up not bidding. I probably should have taken a shot, but the dial is a bit rough for my tastes and it looks like it would be a challenge to refinish properly.
