Then you have a problem

This one could be a Franken dial from a WG put into a steel case. Unless the buyer is clear about what he sells, maybe look elsewhere

I have been tempted many times as well.

But...polishing gold is a totally different story to polishing steel, due to the rhodium layer. Assuming this would not be an issue, it is a superb watch. All the best, Alex

The square indices indicate that it's white gold.

The date placement indicates it's a 39mm diameter case, long discontinued (newer models are 41mm, I believe). M4

Technically the square indices indicate precious metal, since this model came in WG, YG and RG variants.

They also did a limited edition variant in platinum and steel, which has the square indices.

Yes, this is a Limited edition.

I believe it was named Kasparov, after the Russian chess champion, if my memory serves me well. I can’t recall how many were made, but most were sold on strap and all in precious metal.

Looks like a 26022BC with aftermarket bracelet

I have this model, but with the original factory strap in black. Great watch with a nice solid and weighty feel.
