    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 :D 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.

    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...

    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.

    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 :thumbsup: I think it’s working

    Please share a link to that strap as well ::shy::

    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

    I quit that Facebook stuff a while ago, so I don’t know. Listing was on WUS.

    No room in the photo for the glass of wine - still, this is a watch forum not a wine forum - right?
