Could someone give me an opinion on this watch?
It needs to be sold so I want to know what I am selling.
I'm told it is a 810 1.1 with a solid case and was only made for a short time?

I've found this comparison article which seems to support this -
https://www.fratellowatches.com/tbt-bre ... p-time-810

Any comment please? It is complete with box and guarantee if that helps.

Box and papers certainly add value, and the dial looks very clean. Does it still have luminescent material on the dial or has it all been removed? Hard to tell in your pic.

Thank you for the replies.

The luminescent is still present going by another of the images.

Also a screenshot from an auction in Sept 2017 where a similar watch sold for £4200 (+24% commission and VAT)
Total over £5000! I've no idea but that seems quite a sum!

That one had an all silver dial if that matters?

I think that was the all time record.

So the auction estimate of £3500 > £4000 would be a reasonably price for a pristine piece?

Out of interest, if the works has to come out of the front, how it that done?

yes, a reasonable range.
with monocoque toploaders the crystal is removed, then the split stem crown, this allows you to decase the movement
