Hi all - little help on this one please. I have always been a sucker for triple data moonphase watches and this one seems to be pretty neat one but want to check with you for inputs as to authenticity - Seller gives 30 day return policy so I thought I'd check with the experts here. Judging from the pics I don't know about the "near mint" part but sometimes the photos do not do true justice to a watch - I won't know until I am holding it in my hands I guess. Also any inputs about this movement would be appreciated. I know that the valjoux 7750 (I think thats the one) one has be very careful about adjusting the day/date/moon and be sure the hands are around 6:00 to be sure (?).

two tone 18k stainless bracelet
18k gold solid fixed tachymeter bezel
white dial
automatic (1150)
moon-phase, date ring, day / month
24 hours display
12-hour chronograph, plexi crystal
Ref. 3730.20, ca. 1990, 38mm, Near Mint

Width: 38 mm
Height: 44.5 mm

This is a scarce watch and from our research it was only produced for about a year in 1990.

Nothing jumps out but the pictures aren't very good. When you get it, please check the fit of the bracelet - it seems a bit off and the mirror that the watch is on doesn't help either. I'm not sure if the crystal is original, but it could just be the pictures.

Thanks for your reply. I got the watch and it is far from mint with scratches all round and a few dings here and there. The bracelet is way too small for my 7 3/8" wrist at about 6.5" - but every one I've seen of this model seems to have that same bracelet size. The bracelet seems somewhat fragile for a bigger guy like me. I am going to put the bracelet away and find a nice aftermarket 2-tone that will fit my wrist and I don't have to worry about. The watch winds fine and all function work fine - I have not timed it but all the setting work fine also. Not the greatest example but at the price I paid I think I will keep it and maybe get it refurbished at some point in the future. Really nice addition to my collection.
