Would you buy this 16550?

I was in the process of buying my wife a 16570 when I came across this 16550 on crown and caliber. I am getting a good deal on a trade in and was browsing their explorer when I came across this one. Seems to be priced low compared to to other 16550s. Any reason to stay clear from this one? I am looking to buy a watch in original condition, which they did not comment on.

if you're seriously interested then contact the seller and find out more about the watch. then you will be in a better position to make the choice.

Price isn't too bad, but I'd keep searching for a little better bezel.

The dial is a 16570 dial, not sure if the case is over polished but for this price i will look for a 16570 which is all period correct and have papers.

Well, even if price is not so bad, I'd wait for some better watch tbh
