I think it looks good. Is the watch coming out of France? It has some French market characteristics.

Thanks so much Zaf.

Yeah, it's in between Paris and my Dutch dwelling as we speak.

One thing to look out for on this model, it that the axis of the automatic rotor is not broken. I should have no movement other than gliding back and forth to hit the bumper springs i.e. it should not move at all in the direction of dial to the caseback.

This is quite a beauty... I have a concern:

I want one just like it! Though, I'd settle for a nice looking JLC PR...

I'm also curious about Zaf's comment: I'm wondering, what might be a 'French market characteristic'?

Also, thought I might add, I have one similar, though not a PR, and not out of France:

Looking more closely, I think answered my question: 'Fab Suisse'!
