  1. Hello, I plan to purchase a vintage rolex for £1000-£1200 in the next month, and I am wondering whether it is possible to get one in decent condition for that price. I have found this watch on eBay and wonder if the condition is too good to be true for the price -http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rolex-6694-Oysterdate-Precision-Vintage-Mens-Watch-/371423524620?hash=item567a91370c I would appreciate it if you could give me information on what to look for with my budget. Thanks.
  2. Well, my cases finally arrived. Their first departure city was Istanbul, Turkey. I must say.......they have lived-up to my high expectations. Really nice.......I mean these are heirloom pieces of watch luggage. They are built to last forever. Are they a bit expensive?? Sure, but compared to the watches I have stored in them, the high cost is really a non-issue. Here are some pics..... The first thing that I noticed was the weight of the empty case. Between 8.5-9 pounds.....built very solidly Rather than having a metal latch to close the case, there are straps that start at the bottom of the case and loop up over the top. There are two holes in each strap so that the case can be closed more loosely or a little more tightly. The inside is very nice and plush. It can hold up to eight watches with the size of these watches being very large. My DSSD doesn't even come close to rubbing one of the other watches The pillows are large and have to be compressed a little for my bracelets that are sized for my 7" wrist. They fit in their slots well, but not super snugly. The tray that holds the watches is easily removed so that the case can be used for another application if chosen. I really like the case, and am very happy with my birthday gift, although it is a bit extravagant. My wife is a great woman.
  3. Well played my friend. Looking forward to the incoming post. Hope you can survive until May!
  4. "AIRMAN" - you mean Air King? Dial is re-worked and re-lumed Watch may be a fake, no way to tell with that one photo.
  5. Yeah that date window is fishy for sure... God I hate these people..

    Perhaps the new luminova hands simply were not charged and that is why they are not glowing. Just a thought.
  7. Oh... Black face and steel bracelet strap (finer one). Thanks!
  8. From SKX00...? I tried an old one I had but the fit was not good. Does yours have solid end links?
  9. IWC pilots tend to be ,one lug to lug so it makes them wear bigger. I could get a BP but it will look garish on me

  11. It's sunny-side-up. I guess you prefer over-easy.
  12. Glad I'm not the only one who does this sort of thing.
