  1. Adjusted like a slide? You mean the glidelock system? No, Rolex only does that for the newer ceramic model subs.
  2. Thank you for your insight. I don't feel disrespected as much as disappointed. The salesman was very cordial and I have no complaints in that regard. I was simply surprised that they would let a previous customer walk and lose a sale without so much as an offer however small. The theory that someone else will come walking through the door behind me and pay full price, it's possible certainly, but this isn't the latest iphone. I am in no rush to purchase and will certainly listen to their offer if they make one. What I meant by being less inclined to purchase from them is that I would now vi
  3. Half millimetres?? It is completely alright for me. You need to worry less and wear more. The watch is not even completely perpendicular to the camera lens. If your watch is just nice after reducing by 5 mm using the Easy link, it is fine. Unless you like the watch to be loose at the wrist bone.
  4. If it was authentic, it would only require switching the gold bezel and crown for SS......a completely plausible past occurrence. Many of these older Subs become a hodgepodge of authentic parts that aren't necessarily OEM for a given manufacturing year. That is the reason it is so important to know your source when purchasing a pre-owned Rolex.
  5. Sorry to hear about this. I don't think anyone will attack you though. Any watch can be a lemon or have certain issues, the biggest problem here is the way the company you bought it from is treating you. A 1 year warranty should definitely cover this. I also don't think that mark on the lug caused your whole watch to fail. What company did you purchase it from?
  6. Wow! That has an amazing presence and looks fantastic on your wrist. Enjoy!
  7. The watch in the picture will be hard to find and if so, will most likely command premium pricing. This is the 5444-5 Portuguese Regulateur in Titanium, one of only 50 pieces. It's even being discussed on the official IWC site (scroll down, there is a pic). Maybe IWC started doing that with more recent models? My 2003 Portuguese Chronograph did not have such a metal plate, but when I traded up to a non-LE Portuguese Automatic (2010) I also received an upgraded box with a similar metal plate:
  8. You have certainly done your homework. I have the same size wrist and had an IWC pilot watch (39mm Spitfire UTC) for about 6 years before selling it (which I sometimes regret). I will try to answer your questions. 1. I'm sure the watch can withstand crutch use, as the movement has a shock absorber system. The only thing I would perhaps consider is using a stronger spring bar (assuming you go strap instead of bracelet), as I would be concerned about extra wrist pressure, though this may not be an issue. 2. This of course depends on whether you go strap or bracelet and how tight you wea
