Flea Market Find -

The cool thing about flea market is you never know what you might pick up.
How could I say no to this one?

Nice! What kind of flea market sells pateks? I like the movement and the functions power reserve, moonphase, date, sub seconds. However, the dial is a little strange to me. Having the 9-3 hours written and then realizing that there is no room at the bottom of the dial for numbers. I would have to see in person to really judge...I bet the finishing is nice. Is it wg or steel?

it is white gold. The "how can I say no?" question was presented to a friend of mine last week.

What would anyone do when presented with an opportunity to obtain a similar item via trade of equal value?
Or what do you do next once you get that grail watch you have searched for?

It is something all collectors face at some point in time.
