  1. go for the hulk..it is different from what you have in your collection now..
  2. A 13 year old Lexus LX470 (2002). Bought it used in 2009. Great vehicle for my part of the world and still only has about 92k miles.
  3. I don't think I could pull it off, but it looks great. The dial has a lot of dimension to it. Congrats, and enjoy.
  4. errrrr..... great idea, rose gold making that tough. i have to find one that incorporates my deployment buckle vs. having it's own hardware. lol stay tuned.

    That is cool - LOVE that patina
  7. I sold my AT 2000 - 3568, to help fund a purchase of another watch. However, I missed once it was gone. I liked the quality, the sturdiness and the very well executed finish. It was utterly dependable, and the ETA2892A2 movement was extremely precise - with only about +1s every other day. So I decided to buy the new 3290. It is even better made, the ingenious bezel is a joy to use, and it uses the same very solidly made ETA2892A2 movement. Which is a good thing. You'd want something reliable when you buy a diver. A delicate in-house movement, is better reserved for dresswatches and complications, in my opinion. IWC could have used their own 80110 calibre - its a lovely movement (I know 'cause I've had one under a display back on the Vintage Ingenieur), but it would have made the 3290 bigger and heavier. One little thing I like about the new Aquatimer, is the flat back (the previous one had a raised back), because it makes the watch less wobbly on the wrist, and a tad more discreete. The legibility is beyond reproach, and the comfort excellent. As always with IWC. Here's an image of the different versjons of the Aquatimer 3290. I opted for the 3290-4, on bracelet with silver dial, but I bought the rubber strap as well. They come off easily, thank's to IWC's proprietary quick-lock-system, making swapping bracelet for rubber a three seconds job per side. Would I recommend the 3290? You bet. I find the overall finish and appearance more appealing than a PO or Sub.
  8. Thanks for the comment. The lighting effect was intentional - an attempt to add some dynamism to an otherwise static and balanced image.
  9. sorry to hear that! hope you get well soon! if you need some medical advice pm me!
  10. Great job Anon digging this up. I had seen it but could not recall where.
  11. Probably the parts were bought on the open market rather than stolen, but you should be aware that legitimate 'Aviator', 'Poljot Aviator' and 'Poljot Russian Aviator' watches were products from the 1st Moscow Watch Factory and therefore do not use Raketa movements. The exact source of these recent Raketa-powered reproductions is unknown (my guess is somewhere in Moscow where most of the parts could be sourced) but there has been some discussion of them on this forum. And you are correct that '2609' is not a correct designation for a 24 hour movement so this is a 12 hour movement that has been modified. It is quite a common modification.
  12. Why not a Vostok Amphibia? They are true Russian watches and all the modern ones are automatic and fairly reliable.
  13. Thanks for your good advice, schnurrp. This is actually an operation I'm comfortable with performing. Would was just hoping there might be another way.
