    You could say rare. Only 2950 made between 1948 and 1953, and probably less than half of those are the RAAF variant, with a very minescule number of those having fixed bars. I would most likely take any that I could get my hands on though. While ~5k is not expensive by forum standards, it does fall outside of of my just had a new baby budget.

    Thanks. I am taking the time to learn patience and be discerning about my future purchases. Also, to try and tackle that mountain of teaching the five year old not to be an angel for everyone else and a complete jerk to us - but that one's going to be a rather long term project.

    Vintage Valjoux 72 chrono, though somewhat more affordable than the Rolex equivalent ;) Still a super cool piece!

    I have a softspot for 70s Autavias, got three of them. The cal 12 Siffert might be the most popular, but to me this manual three-register chrono with Siffert coloring is even cooler.
