    Have to thank Kyle for a tip-off on this one, I've wanted one of these as a daily wear piece for some time, as being non-date I can actually pick it up and wear it without my OCD kicking in about setting it correctly. The listing had absolutely terrible photos, as in blurry as hell, and only like 3 pics, but it was clear what it was and it deserved a new home so I bought it instantly.

    I'm going to get it off to my man Paul here in Brisbane for a new crystal and a full service but I'm pretty happy with the case, the crown I _think_ is original as well, and the dial doesn't actually have blurring of the text, the crystal is just filthy and ragged.

    What do you guys think?

    Eight pictures, none of them close enough to tell anything, no movement picture either. What can I say? :mad:

    There's always one in the crowd, eh? :p I can tell it's a 2500 and it's gold. I can also tell Ash is gonna wear it a lot in the next few weeks.

    Only just got it, I won't open it myself I'll get my watchmaker to on Monday and the only camera I have around is the iPhone 5S, so these shots are all in a dark room using the Macbook Pro's Retina display as the only lighting. I will take more pics later though

    Excellent addition! :cool:

    I've read all the posts several times and here's a word that I haven't yet seen to describe this watch...

    DIBS! :D
