Basically, a homage (although, a nice one)...

Not a very pretty movement IMO but maybe this is the last one in the universe, so they feel it is worth $10,000? LOL

For $1100 it would be a good deal. $10k? That's crazy.

After seeing their other auctions, it does not surprise me...

So how many of these Cortebert 618's movements are there. do they come with serial numbers on them like the other Cortebert movements from that time period?

does anybody have any info?

Certainly not "only one"-mine I had was at least 2nd, and that one is not my former...

mine had no serial # on it....

There's a reason they're at 98.2% positive feedback.

and that round the world watch looks like something I would buy my Grandma at a seaside curios shop for 5 bucks!

I agree the tourby movement is largely overpriced. As is most of their movements which definitely can be sourced cheaper elsewhere.

However, what do you guys think of the rest of their parts, I was looking to get some heat treated hands from them which cost $100 but seem decent quality compared to most ebay stuff.

Also, I am looking at their 6497 case which is one of the smallest around at 42mm and seems (?) to be better quality then the run of the mill parnis/ corgut cases. Do you guys know any other sources for 6497 based cases and hands? Can't seem to find many under 42mm.

Funny, I was just looking at those hands and thought they do look really good. Additionally, the minute hand being 18mm long is really nice because most of the others are only 16mm and that is way too short for a 44 - 47mm watch.

That was already mentioned a few posts before...however, I think the ad says $95K for a set of five wathces, so less than 20K per watch - that's not so bad :roll:

I think their brass hands are very nice. Thicker than most and a grade that patina’s Easily.

Their blue 3646 hands I believe are electroplated. So if you want genuine best is to buy from binbin

And $100 is overpriced
