A newbie poster here, longtime lurker.

I've been researching early model Navitimer 806's and found one that I'm really interested in and that I think is legit. However, despite all the articles, forum threads, and pictures I've reviewed online, I still don't think I have the expertise to make the call on this particular model, there are just so many variables out there (and horror stories).

I should say I think this one is from 1958, given the serial number on the inside case back.

So what say the resident experts? Quality buy or disastrous decision?

Thanks!

So an update... they are asking $13K for this watch. Honestly, I was expecting to go up to maybe $7K, since aside from being pretty pristine, it's not one of the rarer model 806s. $13K is just too much sadly.
