Will do, one of these days . I am not wearing my dress watches on a regular basis (anymore)...
Wow, really cool watch! Looks like something discovered from King Tutankhamun's tomb Love the bracelet.
I think the inscription looks nice and adds personality to the watch.
So here another picture. I am not really a genius in photography, and in particular I never have a lot of time. Should really reactivate my DSLR for such purpose...
The strap is not doing the watch any good, it was the only 19mm sized one I had lying around, but a black one will be better (or a suitable steel bracelet, but I am really more a leather strap guy).
I have some wear on my gold capped case on the lugs, and this has always annoyed me a bit, but I do have a WG bezel case like this one from a watch I bought as a donor some time back, so this combination has been tempting to me, but never having been able to find a combination like this in the wild has stopped me.
Those gold linen dials really are very nice to look at though.
Mine says hello! Huge fan of linen dials.
Received this photo for an upcoming auction, instead of a special dial, I think this is a redial, never seen a missing SWISS or SWISS MADE, the AUTOMATIC looks out of center as well - however I still like it, they at least designed something new and simple
Also a reminder note to myself, but I guess a common knowledge for experienced members and a good advice for all beginners like me, one must ask and insist on quality photos for all auctions and check the angles etc. - auction houses are great at hiding the flaws, and they usually send/show low res photos
The dial could also be authentic. Sorry, but the picture quality is really not good enough to determine that. Always a risk when trading online...
Now on a black strap.
I think you are better off buying constellations with 751 or 564 movement rather than the 10xx, from what i read here in the forum these are the ones with a couple of plastic materials in the movement to reduce the production cost.. just my opinion.
Wow, looks amazing.
I've just joined the club this week after receiving this 168.027 from a nice fellow in Hong Kong. I love that the dial is either grey with black plots or violet with silver plots, depending on the light. Crystal needs a bit of polywatch, and bracelet has some stretch, but I'm really pleased. The problem is, now I want one with a smooth bezel and white dial!
Recently broke an endlink for my 1040 bracelet. Put on this colorful & cheerful strap to brighten the mood I think it’s working
Please share a link to that strap as well
By the way, just noticed this recently, these dials have slightly thicker 3/6/9 indices, while the others are thin, not even easy to tell up close, I noticed it after seeing a macro shot
Of course, it comes from @Optimizer13’s shop: https://www.veblenist.com/straps/candi-suede-watch-strap
Do you have the macro shot available? I’d be interested to see these differences
was this the same guy from hong kong who posted in facebook vintage watch group?
I quit that Facebook stuff a while ago, so I don’t know. Listing was on WUS.
Not sure if I said this already but that strap is spot on.
love this watch and its bracelet!!
No room in the photo for the glass of wine - still, this is a watch forum not a wine forum - right?
