    Owing to some of the kind folks here on OF, namely @Diabolik, @bgrisso, @ELV web and @Larry S , I've landed myself a long awaited Compax to add to the stable.

    Some very raw pictures taken upon arrival.

    I am sourcing a correct crown for this one.. If anyone has any leads.. It'll be greatly appreciated!!

    In the mean time... Enjoy!

    Congrats I think you did great. A little crystal polish, new crown, will look even better

    Supermassive congratulations on snaring this one. I have the little brother 222101 and for me these are very special dials. Enjoy!

    I think this is a 222101-1......I have one which I love as well.......the larger 38mm is the 22704-1, but looks different......unless I am getting my ref #s mixed up......it gets confusing

    I can’t recall ever seeing the oversized version with the linen dial, just a uniform white silver one. Having said that, the watch in this thread does look larger in the wrist shot. What size case is yours please @Xeer so we can put this mystery to bed?

    35.5 or well 36mm on mine.

    It does wear large. I have many 36mms and this one looks and feels 37/38mm on the wrist.

    Ended up snagging this crown from the bay.

    Hopefully it fits right.

    its quite hard to tell until you have it in hand and see if it fits, I believe this one below is correct, I'm not sure on the size in mm...

    bro I have a few spare crowns for Compaxes, but I'm not sure if it's fit yours, if you need to try it on, let me know.
