Hello, could anyone give me a check if the following watch is authentic and what price range they usually go for?
Here is the ebay description given:
Offering rare and popular model M177S from Sea-Gull. Watch is with amazing silver dial, in stainless steel, and leather strap (after market).
They don't manufacture this model anymore and it's sold out everywhere. Very hard to find - COLLECTOR'S ITEM!!!!!
Complications: Date, Automatic.
Width: 40mm (not including crown)
Width: 43mm (including crown)
Lug Width: 20mm
Lug to Lug: 47mm
Quality of this watch is outstanding, precise finish, fantastic silver dial, see-through back. This is a lot of watch for your money!
Watch comes complete without boxes or paperwork, I am selling just the watch.
This watch is in good condition, minor scratches and signs of handling. My pics show some dust and fingerprints, but watch looks much better in person.
The movement is accurate and all of the complications function precisely.
In all likelihood, it's authentic. I own one of these. Not more than a year ago, you would have been able to pick one up new for about $120. However, they've been discontinued so it's hard to estimate the going price right now. Despite being discontinued, I can't see these going for much more than the original price even when new. There was (is?) an upgraded version that looks identical but had a higher-end movement and sapphire crystal and went for about $200, I think. So I'd say that the version you're showing should be well under $200 unless you really love the look and want to pay the premium to own it.
I also own the similar-looking Seiko (SNX121), and the Sea-Gull definitely is nicer.
