The lowest known number and worst example with a replaced balance wheel brought an incredible $22,800. at the Atwood sale last Friday. It was formerly from the Dick Zeibell coll'n. and was evenly spotted.

I'd say it was more of the condition than the price which astounded me--but then where would would one get another?

This COMPANY JUST might be one of the very most difficult watches to acquire in early AMERICAN WATCH COLLECTING.
