    Found this in a thrift store in New Zealand today and thought you would like it - quite mint and working!

    I take it you bought it and took it home?
    As a fellow kiwi, I'm interested as I have the same one in my collection but not in as good condition.
    Nice find.

    I sure did, sitting on the mantle piece! Where did you find your own pieces? Share a photo?

    I found mine on trade me quite a few years ago.
    It had no seconds hand which I have since bought a replacement off eBay. This is an old photo.
    Paid around $100 NZD for it, if I remember rightly.
    How much did you pick yours up for if you don’t mind me asking.
    Bit jealous of the great quality of yours. Mine is a bit battered around but I look at it as character.

    $150 NZ

    I imagine it’s worth much more though - had to have it and never thought I’d find one in an op shop! Yours looks great too.

    Great find. Yep, worth a lot more than $150.
    Always great to find something like this when you aren’t expecting it.

    A bloody brilliant find and at that price a steal.

    I bought one on eBay for about £125 I think last year, but nowhere near what paid and certainly not in as mint condition as @K-D-A! Great find!

    Mine is missing the red seconds hand and the visor sticker has shifted slightly over the years and sticks up from the visor at one end, but otherwise great condition.

    I got mine relatively cheaply as the guy had selected collect in person only as the delivery options, but in fact was happy to ship, so its appeal was really only to people living local to the guy in France.

    You find them online these days going for £450 (8500 of your funny money), so you got an absolute bargain.
