I remember this got mentioned in the project discussions. Was this a prototype?

Aren’t they all :)

But certainly much less common than the standard lug model we are most familiar with and trying to replicate in the project. In my10 years of cpllecting I have only seen pictures of 1 (now 2?) examples.

If it sells for more than 5 % of the asking price, i'll eat all of my tangled balance springs. Who would be the target buyer for this? A top russian watch collector who has more than 100 watches. So for this he's going to pay more than he paid for his entire collection? Sure.

Well, who knows. Maybe that buyer is out there someplace. I know it's not me, but... I suppose he figures he can always go down and there's certainly a lot of room in that direction.

Ludicrous price it may be but someone out there will value rarity enough to pay a pretty hefty price for that thing, quite possibly into five figures. Stranger things have happened. Definitely won't be me!
