A few newb questions here. I'm unfamiliar with Moonwatch versions made prior to the latest 1861 311.30.42.30.01.005, but they all seem pretty consistent. I've set an upper limit of $6,000 CAD for a clean Moonwatch, which rules out anything new that isn't a discounted piece from the AD. I've been looking at used Moonwatches of the 3570.50 variety, which also have the 1861. Forums seem to say these are a wash. Aside from service history, is there any reason to avoid these? Are they any better or worse, are they less desirable overall, or will their long-term value be any different than the recently departed 311.30.42.30.01.005?

Enjoying a sunny, yet crisp Speedy Tuesday with my .005. I waited 25 years to make her acquaintance. We'll be together 6 years come January 13th. Looking to celebrate the occasion in a special way when the time comes.

3570.50 like you said has the same 1861 movement, the difference as I understand it is really the presentation box. Same movement, same service. Its just the warranty that changed near the end of the 311.30.42.30.01.005 life.
