A TR 900 is not often seen. Most of them have history, but this one is also quite nice. A pity the crown is not good, but hey, we would be many to be happy to have such a piece of History in our collections. Credit picture: Phillips. Best, Nicolas ...

I have no other word for this, my friend! Very special, indeed.

Yes, maybe. [nt]

Torneks are the absolute grail in military collecting. For me above the MilSub in terms of rarity and the uniqueness.

While they look like rebranded Blancpains, they were actually heavily, heavily modified to have a low magnetic signature. As a result, the entire movement was made from copper beryllium instead of the usual steel. Because of this, it's quite hard to fake.... 

I think it is... [nt]

When Billy owned it had a correct crown. Billy auctioned the watch off and short time later it sold again at auction and did not have correct crown.

I am curious what happened to the correct crown. Who ever owns this watch now I have a correct crown. Brian
