Icon5 I am looking to buy a MINT full gold 1680 purple nipple dial

Where do I start? Where do I look for it? Can pay premium for the perfect watch in NOS condition.

Pic very much related.

This is a pretty common flaw so there are a lot of purple ones out there. I actually bought one over a decade ago but ended up returning it after I began to suspect it was a frankenwatch.

The pictured one is far from NOS. Well worn bezel and polished case.

I’d contact well-known dealers directly. Try for example Michael Morgon who comes by this forum occasionally.
