So, did anyone on this forum get this watch???

I was watching this auction with interest, but can't buy any more watches at the moment, so would love to see it restored (difficult, missing the case back!)

I did, I don't have a back, but at one point one will show up.

So, I just checked and there are 3D printers that use 14K gold for the material. Or, they can use the model to make a metal casting and then plate it. Send the company a model, they give you an estimate. It would be awesome for watch case parts.

Good to hear, Mark. It looks like a lovely example. I will look forward to seeing the finished article when a case back finally makes an appearance. Congrats.

That is awesome. I wish they had been around the last time I had a solid gold bezel disappear in the mail.
Real men wear small watches.
