at that price a fucking bargain

Definitively! I have a gen Junkers with similar movement (another iteration of the 9015 with PR and 24h at 6) with a plexy crystal and it was 330$... Before I ventured into the wild rep world...

I don't know why he hasn't sold out already.......like you say an absurd price for a good movement

If it was any of the other 123 range I'd be all over this, unfortunately it's a tad too big I reckon.

It will sell out as soon as I give in and order one.

I had one of the ones with mineral crystal (purchased from a different dealer) and it was indeed a very nice watch. The only bad thing I can say was the noisy rotor but that's a 9015 for you :p

I just got mine from Toro and it is great.  It gained 1 second in 3 days!

I had one of these a while back as well, very light and comfortable watch.

What strap is that? 

 

I went to the jeweller today to put a gen on and liked the feel of it a lot more than I expected 

Also, I've noticed the arrow is slightly off center to the 12... It's the same on my qc pictures, so I assume that's just part of the watch? The gen didn't have that today

I've just had a look, the triangle seems central, it must be the angle of the picture, which does look off centre 

The strap was a bargain off watch geko, in the sale £14 delivered UK

22mm Confirmed. ...

If you are looking at or having one custom made, make it 22/20.  That is 22mm at the watch lugs and tapering to 20mm at the clasp. They are a lot more comfortable if the strap tapers some.
