Points of Mention
The watch does have patina on the dial. The case was professional polished and is in good condition, the crown was replaced with a tone correct 18k rose gold crown when serviced, the watch was serviced in 2018 and running great.
When people talk value in the industry it's always a tough one as value means different things to different people. When I see a 18k gold vintage chronograph for under £1000 I see incredible value! If this watch was to have a more recognised brand on the dial it would be anywhere from 3x or 10x depending on the brand, that is value. Plus I like the idea that you will probably NEVER see another on someone's wrist.
