Yes I agree, the publicity on the auction was relatively poor and on hindsight, I think Moritz Grossmann would have done much better if it decided to sell the watches directly itself. Most were piece uniques and there are many collectors out there who would pay double of what I did for a pocket watc
It is interesting that the LM101 at 40mm looks larger than the 39mm Chronometre Bleu when they are almost the same size. I love your LM101. I had a rose gold version when it first came out but the height of the watch got to me after a few months.
