Hello everyone,

First post about the beautiful 806. Looking a while (years) for an 806. But the problem is an original one, for reasonable prices. The seller is saying that it is original, but I have my doubts. Can someone comment on this one?

The thing I doubt over is the second NOS or sweep. The little red end?? And how about the rest. 1967 with serial 11(4or9)5392

Thank you very much for any comment.

Looks all fine, but a bit worn and tired. All the lume material looks lost from the dial. The red tip is uncommon but I think seen before.

Can you include a clear straight-on dial shot? I think the bezel insert does not match the dial (b/w and no red bits)? And it looks like there’s a red top on the sweep hand? Hard to tell from these pics.
