3180 split, carved and linen

It’s an actionable listing alright. Just not enough wrong with it to ignore. Belongs right beside your AD and Print

I can’t believe the deep pockets collections are leaving the door open at 14k! Get the weak hands out!

Not suggesting any fraud - just surprising to have zero knowledge of a reference ever existing to seeing 2 for sale in less than a year

It’s a good question, but there have been a few other examples like this - the 4522-8000 with the Grand Seiko/Daini logo dial, the silver sunburst 6146-8000, the AD dialed first with the service dial from July 1965, the 18k 6146-8030...

At the end of the day, you have to take each on their merits, and think very critically about them. In this instance, there is just no way that print has been redone. And if the print is legit, whatever is underneath it must be as well.
