    I see, I SEE!

    The crown is not correct, however... which is a bit unfortunate.

    Anyway....Dibs on this one!!

    Inquiry/offer made...:whistling:

    Crap.

    Apparently, it's already sold... I decided to buy it, but someone barely beat me to it... :(

    You didn't get it?

    Other than the crown, what did you think? Looked like the case had been polished a bit, but otherwise...

    Did you see my PM from an hour or so ago?

    For the price I was put off by the polish. He seller 'fixed' the hands after I talked with him. They were black at the time. Well..Full story is, it was on eBay a while ago. Didn't end well. Black hand,,,etc,,,Seller is mainly all Rolex so I gave him some time. We talked. But he pulled it. Didn't see it until your pm. I think I replied but apologies if I missed one of your pm's :whipped:

    I only just discovered rpm Mostly really expensive Rollies. Never thought to look for Longines there. Matter of fact, I'm looking to add a couple GMTs.

    Waiting for my new root beer ::stirthepot::::psy::::psy::

    Interesting combi of cal 292 movement with scalloped crown and plain presentation caseback.

    Together with my other 294.

    Too late! :whistling: But I did give him a tip-off as compensation, he should be chiming in with his own duo soon! ;)

    Yes, double green with envy, here! I was not as fortunate as Marcus on that one, but...
    ...like a true gentleman, he held back on another for me!

    Hopefully, it will be here from Germany any day now...:cautious: ... two weeks already :confused:

    Yep. So far, so good, although I was surprised to see the PR indicator showing about 39 hours when I opened the box up. Perhaps alot of jostling in the mail-truck? ;) I'll throw it onto the Timegrapher to see if I can tell if it's truly almost 'fully-wound' or not...:unsure:.

    But I'm very happy with its cosmetic condition :thumbsup:...

    The cat's not so sure what all the excitement's about...

    But I believe I saw what is usually considered the gaze of approval...

    Thanks, Marcus, neither one of these ever would have happened without YOU!

    Your double-dibs (double-dip?) duly noted...:thumbsup::thumbsup:
