    Hi Bassem, yes I saw this pop up on Ebay earlier. It's a lovely piece!

    Why is it a prototype please-isn't it just a first execution 844 'Monnin' production model?

    Many thanks, Steve

    Should the minute hand have a pointy end?

    Couldn't see it on eBay anywhere, either completed listings or current?

    That catalogue picture is too small for me to see the hand shape, but it looks like it could have a pointy end even so. You keep using the word "prototype" and it headlines your eBay listing also. It could be you don't fully appreciate the meaning of this word, but I would suggest you refrain from using it in your ebay listing unless you can verify it is indeed a prototype rather than a production model.

    Hi Bassem, yes I agree it is early and as mentioned, you don't see many of these types.
    Here is another one I had though-

    I also agree it isn't a 'prototype' but good luck with the sale!
