    Carrera 3647S.

    Looks original to me (including the crown)...question for me would be the condition, which certainly isn't mint, although it would clean up quite nicely.

    Would have to be a good price...otherwise, if budget allows, you could wait until a better example comes along.

    BTW, this might help:

    agreed with D.C. - everything looks correct, but it's quite hard to tell based on low quality/pool lighting in the pictures. In some angles the case looks to have sharp bevels on the lugs, but in others, it appears over polished. The dial appears as it may be slightly "dirty" or discolored, but again it's tough to tell, as sometimes that can just be an old worn crystal and bad lighting. I would say this isn't the cleanest example, but the lume on the hands looks good, so if the price is right, it could clean up nicely.

    Thanks for the advice ì guess if you are unsure pass the deal rule would apply in this case. The lack of lume on the 5 min marker troubles me and the dirty dial. Although the price is low i felt

    Hi.
    Not in minth condition as mention above, but certainly a nice watch.
    I guess it is from mid 60's? a model of the Carrera 45.

    it lacks the original strap i guess? and the buckle maybe. But that can be bought with some luck.

    What price are we talking about here? ::book::

    Although I would still want to see some additional pictures in better lighting, and pending everything functioning as it should, I would possibly entertain this watch at that price. If you're going to pass, maybe PM me the seller?
