    Hello. I'm new to the thread, I saw alot of abbreviations used, I couldn't understand a few. Please help me out, what do they mean and also suggest other abbreviations used:

    Connie - constellation
    Speedy - SPEEDMASTER
    Speedy Tuesday - ?? Why is it called so
    FOIS - ?? (I think this is the abbreviation)
    NOS - ??

    Also Is there a short form of deville?

    Got it. Thank you.

    Also in WTB thread, found means the person has found what they are looking for right?

    DON (dot over ninety) bezel:)
    A piece of metal ring with tachymeter insert that costs more than a new Speedmaster.

    WTB means Want To Buy. The person has not yet found what he's looking for and is still Willing To Buy ;-)

    When it finally happens, the prefix is changed to FOUND instead. ;)

    A bezel can cost more than several watches :whistling:

    This is just brilliant. So much history, learning so much with this thread. Shocked to hear that this bezel is so rare!

    I think when you make a spelling mistake or something worth correcting, a Moderator might correct your post and write "FIFY" underneath. At least thats what i think it is.

    If you put a @ symbol before a members name it tags them

    On the funny side, the best I ever saw was ROMDS = Red Omega Mars Dust Syndrome
    Describing or related to the bad quality of the red Omega boxes, which deteriorated very fast...

    So not only mods, but also "members" are permited to correct posts? Or is it that you only mention the correction in a comment below?
