  • Darn...I never saw this and it appears to have sold last month.

    Wow...a gold-plated case with 56-H caseback, but with a Golden Horse dial.
    I missed this because I tend to search for the word chronometer, and this has no mention of that.

    So many questions...

    It's a real 'stainless steel back' for a gold-plated 56-H (pretty rare). There was no movement shot, so...is it a 30j GH movement, or was the dial damaged and a GH dial was substituted for the 56-H dial?
    Could it have the original chronometer movement inside?
    Is it the original case top with just a replacement case back?

    Sadly, I'll probably never know. It would have been a great catch for re-casing one of my 56-HB movement/dial orphans.

    Bad luck mate.
    We've all got stories of 'the one that got away'.
