This is my first post here, so please go easy on me...
I just bought this rare steel-cased Futurematic, branded "Automatic" which I understand was for the European market. I'm a trader, so the watch will be for sale once renovated. The movement is faulty so it will need a full service - but what about the dial? The auctioneer's description said "surface dirt on the dial", but it looks more like a stain to me. A trader who has one of these on sale told me that it would be more collectable with the dial left as-is, rather than getting it restored. I would welcome your opinions on that.
Via a Google search, I read that there may have been only 500 examples made of the European/steel watch - but I don't know where that opinion or fact came from. If anyone has firm data, that would be very helpful too.
