Opinions for 1665

Hi,

I've been offered this watch,
what do you think of the case for this 1665 mk3?

Some things are 'wrong, as the insert/bezel/pip/bracelet are 'wrong' for the watch.

Thanks in advance.

The insert is wrong, it’s a service insert.
The case is extremely worn, it can be restaurated only with laser welding.
I hope you can get this for a decent price?

Service insert as stated above, very worn down lugs and crown guards. The bracelet is super stretched and in need of a complete rebuild. The watch needs a lot of work.

You would need to be getting this watch for a very good price to offset the amount of work it needs.
