    Come to think of, do you know the produktion year of your sky diver?
    I would think that your is a later version than my?
    Mine has the ”30 jewels” and swiss only for example while yours have t<25mc.

    But I don’t know the various series of these and can’t find much information on the web.

    No, unfortunately I have no idea. Have you tested to see if your dial is radium?

    No I have not, is there anyway to find out with a UV-machine?
    I assumed radium because the lack of ”t” on the dial but I’m not sure!

    You really need a Geiger counter to be sure.

    Hi what generation is this one? With the T Swiss T I am guessing it's a later more common variant?

    It's all about condition, which seems pretty poor, but the photos really aren't good enough to judge. What is the bracelet?

    exactly the same model as mine. that piece has an inner cyclop magnifier and big crown,
    hopefuly still original. the hour hand though lost its mercedes sign. the price may still be
    negotiated.:thumbsup:;)

    I suspect that the hour hand is a lollipop, not mercedes. If you have a gilt Calyosomatic with a mercedes hand, it may be a replacement.

    Crown looks correct. Only one company makes a copy of the "big crown" and the tell between the copy and original is that the copy has a chamfered edge on the underside.

    OP has a flat edge. So 99.9% sure it's legit.

    And as @Dan S mentioned, hands are correct for this model. Mercedes should only be on something like the 8895 model. So you don't want to see that on this model. Lollipop is correct here.

    https://omegaforums.net/threads/titus-calypsomatic.27647/page-2

    but i have reservation on the crown. nevertheless, it is still a beauty.

    7986 has mercedes hour hand. photos borrowed from the net.

    Yes, but we are talking about gilt versions here, not 7986. The OP dial is gilt, and should have a lollipop hand ... as it does. Apologies if I misunderstood some part of your post.
