That was a nice one, didn't see it. I was after this Lecoutre like movement and didn't get to it in time.

Seeing that actually made me a little sick to my stomach. Though the dial isn't identical to the one shown in the 1918 book, I'd bet my paycheck that this 18 jewel "Extra Precision" movement with a square dial was once housed in the elusive 18k "square, extra heavy hand-made 18 kt. green gold case." What a bummer. The M89RZG is my number one white whale. Given its $230 price, way, way, way higher than the other men's strap models at the time, I suspect very few were sold, so it's anybody's guess how many, if any at all, survive today. To see one having been destroyed for a couple hundred dollars worth of gold. Ugh. I contacted the seller on the outside chance that it's not too late, but I've never had one of those inquiries go the way I wanted.
