  1. Go for the in-house movement. 70hrs power reserve is a big plus for me. I can take it off my wrist on Friday night, and on Monday it would still be running.
  2. Great review! Gives me confidence that I made the right choice with the Everest strap. I love mine. Gave my GMT new life since my SS band is showing it's age.
  3. Can I assume with certainty that when my Pelagos was in for regulation that it was pressure tested since the back was off? the receipt says fixed bezel and regulated, receipt doesn't say anything about pressure testing. Heading on a dive trip tomorrow AM and it didn't even cross my mind to ask the AD when I picked it up. I am assuming since its a total dive watch that is a given.
  4. I love this dial. It is one quirky Daytona.
  5. That makes sense and is correct. Serial number dates to Q4 CY 1971 But model 6694 should look like these: https://www.google.com/search?q=ROLE...IVjKCACh3FRgtQ So probably just a redial, but only movement photo can confirm A
  6. For a year now I've been checking 18038's on eBay and I also looked at many after market dials for the day/date and have never run across one like your example.
  7. Thanks, guys! It is going to be an arduous wait, but it will be worth it. I saw a few other watches that caught my eye yesterday while window shopping, but my eye is set on this one!!!
  8. I agree with the others on letting the watch run in for a few weeks and then recheck. I have found that it does tend to settle in after about a month or so.
  9. I guess I'll let my blnr sit for a few days and then adjust the date when it's closer to the date on the watch..not feeling like turning the hour hand for 40 full turns (20 days X 2 full turn/24 hours).

    ss bracelet for 3717

    hi im trying to get the steel bracelet for my iwc flieger 3717. would anyone know the iwc part number for it ? thanks in advance
  11. I'm not sure how much I like that band there. looks a little too exotic for my tastes. I can be convinced though. do you have any other pictures?
  12. thanks. I looked at the black dial version as well. it's gorgeous, no doubt. I went with the white dial because I found it more striking, but also because every watch I've ever purchased has had a black face, so needed a change. best of luck with your search.
  13. ​ I was in the same situation as you :) I was being "manipulated" by my Rolex loving friends: €6.150 (391010 black dial and milanese mesh bracelet) sounded too expensive for "regular steel", no gold elements, no ceramic and no in-house movement. But after reading how accurate and robust the 7750 is, the advantage of low service costs and most importantly..... me loving the design, feel, finishing and everything about its looks, I decided I wanted it, but definitely not for the full retail price! I got 25% discount at an AD and felt that that was an accurate representation of the what you get. Have you seen the watch in real life and put it on your wrist? I know that there are cheaper ETA watches out there, but the finishing of the case, crown, pushers, markers, hands and dial in most cases isn't comparable. I'm still in love with mine and there is no other watch that I would want if I had to choose again with the same budget. I say, go get it :)
  14. Don't complain - you're not buying that IWC anyway :-P
