    Early 50s 37mm jumbo in rose gold. Just put this NOS strap lizard on for a "summer look".
    Bought from Adam Menta of Menta Watches but I believe an OF member may have owned it prior. Love it :)

    Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner! Very nice. Probably the nicest condition lume I have ever seen on an a386. Wear...err...I mean...covet her in good health!

    Good God. Please remove it - delicately - from the box, and take more photos.

    It means he is coming to your house with an overnight bag and a briefcase full of cash.

    It's an informal and unenforceable claim on the right of first refusal, should you decide to sell your watch. Traditionally, this right is awarded to the second person making the claim of "dibs."

    It's a protective layer for the case.

    I personnaly clean those away with acetone but some like to keep those as a NOS proof.

    so when does it get removed usually - after the AD receives the watch but before retail buyer takes possession?

    Those are great and I know little about them. Can you tell us about these? Is one older than the other?
