Will easily go for double the estimate. The case is amazing.

Estimate seems very low indeed.

Hope it won't be ruined by future polishing.

Nice looking case, not that it matters but obviously later bracelet and two odd end links..I would imagine this to sell well above the lowish estimate.

Very nice!
Although I don’t understand why they did not post pictures of the dial without the crystal after they bothered opening the back case...

with a 20% premium comes to around 18.5k usd. That's cheap. Probably around 10k under the market price for an gilt 5513 with that thick case.

Someone stole this one for 18.5k IMO. Great condition overall, some maintenance and a new crystal and off you go...

beautiful case ! the dial I would have had to see it in person:
that tropical area between 12 and 2, may turn out to be water damager, hard to tell.
same for the plots, could be relumed, but again hard to tell.
still : well bought !
