    It’s not what most would regard as a Thin Arrow. It’s another redial variant.

    Yes. I agree. It's a later M.O.D. dial variant. Not an original radium thin arrow. Hope someone does their homework. And I agree Dave the movement look horrible.

    Ah - I thought the dial looked a little funky. How about this one then for 7,245? Not that I'm in the market...

    crumbs, there's a lot of bull and incorrect info in that listing.

    it's a Bienne dial, replacement seconds hand, tension ring and paper disc are probably repro.

    the cartridge cases must be hallmarked..

    Correct on all counts Dave, that used to be mine. I traded it for something he had, I nearly fell off my chair when I saw what he's listed it at.

    Why I hate to sell any thing hard to tell a real collector or one just looking to get a good deal from you and then try to flip it to make a buck in this case lots of bucks. The last watch I sold was my Omega SHOM a few years ago only reason I sold it I got a vintage Omega 300 and the SHOM sat in the watch box for a few years the Omega 300 kind of took it's place. I had it listed at another forum and forgot I posted it. Well a forum member who was a old time member ask if it was still for sale his wife was letting him buy it for his Birthday if I remember right. Well he still has it. I figure out who's a collector and who is a flipper and shark EBAY dealer they never get a watch from me if I can help it they buy it for peanuts from you then then try to double there money nothing but thiefs . I remember selling some pocket watches at a NAWCC mart and this sucker saw a gold colored hunter case pocket watch he thought it was gold I told him no it's not gold the jack ass tested it for gold he only wanted the case to melt down and throw away a perfect working 150 year old movement just in it for the money not in it as a collector I wanted to slap that sucker.

    To be honest I'd be quite happy to settle for this but they're like hens teeth for the non chronograph.
