Hello all,
I purchased this 806 over 20 years ago and it has seen little wrist time, just occasional hand time to wind it at intervals. My concern would be this is a watch to be seen physically I would think? How does someone pay ahead if sold online sight unseen, save for photos? While all the functions are working it is vintage and with that some of the luminance is faded and there is a tiny pit hole on one of the hands and never having been polished the gold plating looks appropriately faded for a 1967 (serial #114xxxx) watch. I have no idea how or where to put it for sale, any comments or suggestions would be appreciated. I did have a vintage dealer in NYC look at it last month to so I could comfortably verify the authenticity to a buyer; it was clearly authentic because they offered to buy it on the spot. It's a beautiful watch but at my age I'm reducing to just a few pieces and it needs to move on to the next owner who appreciates classic time pieces.

Take good photos (dial, lugs, vase back, movement, etc.) and post it here in the for sale section. Most people are buying vintage watches without seeing them "in the flesh" these days?
