Great Classic watch. I really like the patina on the markers.
I agree--it is a lot of money to spend.
For ~$13k I would rather purchase some gently pre-owned items like a JLC Master Ultra Thin (~5k), Rolex Submariner (~4k), Omega Speedmaster Professional (~3k) and call it a day for my watch collection--with give or take $1k left over to boot. I'd also end up with a full range of wardrobe options (dress/dive/chrono) rather than some random watch that only looks good when matched up with the interior of my car.
Or I'd just go in the opposite direction altogether and get one beautiful Patek, VC or ALS.
