  1. Very nice job. I think in this case it's better to polish out the scratches and burs as it looks gouged and abrasive, then also tends be a resting place for dirt and grime that settles in these minute areas. On a Daytona, I would sent it in though. Very happy wifey's okay.

  3. No clue at all. The only sport model that has it is the new Exp2. Not even the GMTc has it and it's the same movement really. Have no idea why Rolex doesn't apply it to the Divers and GMTc.
  4. Why Rolex did this....is something we'll never know for sure. But just like when lug holes disappeared, it was just for aesthetics really. There were some weld failures with a few early GMT2s but they seemed to have worked it out as none have been further reported from late serial numbers and have never heard of it on a Sub at all.
  5. Awesome info and that red Sub is but I have gorilla fingers, I could easily see me pushing and....crack! I'd let a pro do it unless absolutely no watchmaker was in my continent. Good luck.
  6. Aggressive tightening is a common newbie mistake, thankfully I learned this when I bought my Tag 6000 many moons ago. After the time/winding has been set, just push the crown in until you feel a slight spring loaded tension, while doing this turn the crown clockwise gently to ensure proper threading. Once you feel the threads catch you can proceed to tighten until the watch is finger tight, no more no less. When initially seating the threads I always screw in carefully and reverse back and forth once or twice(just small back and forth manipulation without backing all the way out) before I commit to the tightening, but I'm a little paranoid like that. Also it should also be noted that even if the crown isn't screwed all the way in, Seamaster watches are still water tight/resistant for a 100' or so(correct me if I'm wrong fellas) provided the rubber seals/gasket are serviceable. So if you accidentally left the crown unwound and showered or took a dip in the pool with kids your PO would still be good to go, no worries. I would let it dry out before screwing the crown in though, for fear of risking moisture seeping in from the water that's now in the threads, but I'm paranoid like that. I would definitely umm try not to have these types of accidents though as it will encourage a couple of those little dark colored hairs to go umm lighter in hew. Tightening the crown down all the way ensures that we can get jiggy down to 600m.
  7. seems legit, but thats just it. what they post and what they send are two different things. with these purchases it's as, if not more important as to whether the seller is authentic. curiously though, the documentation reveals the serial number of the watch however in the picture it's blotted out. no point in hiding it at that point if you chose to disclose it on the documentation. so that's a red flag for me. you may ask him to email you an unfiltered copy, don't know if you can do that on ebay though. the price is awfully low for that condition and only bought three months ago. I wouldn't sell it that discounted. I'd sell mine at that price but mine is a war veteran that has been through it all so it's needs a little tlc, but for me it was always a tool anyways. if it's too good to be true, it probably is... also this watch isn't rare, unique or featuring a special movement. it's a plain ole PO 2500. by the way I say this being an owner of the very same watch. just not with orange numbers.
  8. you lost a 45.5mm stainless steel watch on your own wrist.... you don't have kids do you.... joking, not really ; ) hahaha this has sorta happened to me. I went on a nice run one day and towards the end the watch was really bothering me so I switched it to my right side(on rare occasions I have worn it righty) to give my wrist a break and where from some reason it jostles less. at the end of my run while catching my breath I nonchalantly glance down automatically for the time and had a heart attack(figuratively speaking) as I notice a bare wrist, my head immediately snaps back to scan the floor from whence I came as I simultaneously think did I drop it, did it some how fall off and I didn't notice, where?...I just ran five miles. All this analytical thinking happened for about 10 minutes, actually it was about two seconds, as I processed these horrid thoughts I instinctively began to pat myself down and didn't get any further than the first place I touched, my wrist. oh wow. idiot. I threw that soiled diaper over my shoulder into the wood line as walked away and thought, glad no one else knows about this.....
  9. noice! white face is so beautiful and eternally classic.
