Thank you. Is the price fair and does everything look original?

upper end of reasonable re price, but, as said, condition is extraordinary.

The re-edition is a completely different watch, the Navitimer 806-59, not a Chronomat. I suspect most people that are vintage watch buffs would, given the choice, prefer to own the vintage piece anyway, so not sure what the “too bad” implies?

I realize that it is a completely different watch, and given the fact that an individual is a vintage watch "buff" it would seem to imply that they would prefer a vintage piece. The "too bad" part refers to the depleted watch fund due to the anticipated purchase of a 1959 re-edition, i.e. it is a beautiful watch but I just don't have the money in the watch fund for it at the moment.
