    Thanks. I noticed some differences on the moonphase subdial when compared with others with the tachymeter. That is why I was asking. If there was a third version...

    I thought I did too, but it didn't make any sense in the context of the post. So I looked it up, and confirmed it didn't make sense. ;)

    Thanks for the advise, I will surely do ask around. There are not many UG enthusiasts around me and they think I’m rather foolish to spend money on UG

    My new UG! Bought on EBay and very proud! Seller said it looked hardly used. I am the new UG expert around here. BGrisso! B Shmisso! Larry S? Come on! See me for the ultimate tips on UG... behold! 70DB3226-FA52-48C0-A18C-456ACE862653.jpeg 3E1247DF-E021-4DF8-87A1-26793405CEB7.jpeg Haha! I seriously crapped the bed on this one! Working on getting my money back. Dear UG experts, I am of course joking with tail between my legs. The watch had a decent buckle... to be continued.

    Plating is rubbed all the way through at the tips of the lugs. For me this is always a deal-breaker unless you’re buying for parts.

    The case back reference is consistent with the case & dial but the crown is definitely not original.

    I completely agree with the comments regarding the plating.

    I have a related question about the difference between gold capped and gold plated. When looking at the back of a gold capped bumper Polerouter you can clearly see a thin layer of gold wrapped around the lugs. With this watch, the back of the lugs are also covered in gold - is that enough to conclude that the case is gold plated rather than gold capped? I am assuming here that we know that the watch is not solid gold.

    Thanks guys. I'm an almost total noob here - can you explain what you mean regarding the plating on the tip of the lugs?

    Can you see all the missing material in this area ? It’s worn all the way through the gold plating and back to the base metal of the case. Extremely unattractive in my opinion.
