Watch in the pictures is fine. Crown guards are terribly over polished, no fixing that. Hard to tell from the pics but the clasp may have been replaced at some point.

What you may or may not get after you purchase is a different story.

Jut curious why you'd want to spend thousands of dollars on something you have "no knowledge about."

Is that in USD, and is that the going rate in your area?

I just bought an unpolished, recently serviced M-serial Sub for less than that. Perhaps itís the pic, but that bezel looks like the teeth are almost gone.

Iím not good with real vs. fake or whether something is over polished, but to my untrained eye (comparing it to my Sub), that watch looks like itís seen a wheel quite a few times.

Seems expensive for that example, but Iím not up to speed on the used Sub market in Malaysia.

GENUINE, and case and dial look all original.
Date code on bracelet would confirm if its original too.
Nice pieces
