They had the orange bezeled PO 2500. It did not have applied indices.

so a young guy came in today to sell a watch. there were all kinds of red flags anyways, so i turned him away, but i wanted to see if i missed something.
there was no box or papers (which by itself is not so uncommon), and he had what i believe was supposed to be am omega PO 42 mm 220.127.116.11.01.002
should have looked like this:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
among the many red flags that went off, the main one was that this watch he had presented me had a solid case back. have any of you seen this model PO, black dial + orange bezel with a solid case back?
In addition to the caseback; on the 2500 models, the OMEGA on the dial is printed and the SEAMASTER is printed white. On the 8500 models, the OMEGA is applied and the SEAMASTER is printed orange.post #29062 of 483122/13/14 at 6:01amQuote:
dude was sketchy. not sure what he was up to, but nothing good.
he was pretty WASPy and arrogant. if i had to guess he knew it was fake and was trying to get one over, he was jittery from the get go and way over dressed like he was forcing an impression.
whole thing was very weird.Quote:
good info. thanks!post #29063 of 483122/13/14 at 6:04ampost #29064 of 483122/13/14 at 7:48ampost #29065 of 483122/13/14 at 7:56ampost #29066 of 483122/13/14 at 10:00ampost #29067 of 483122/13/14 at 10:11am
he was a little kid and he had put on a jacket and tie with his cords, it looks ridiculous and he was clearly trying to put on a show. we regularly buy 5 figure diamonds and most people are in jeans or slacks. the whole sitch was just weird.post #29068 of 483122/13/14 at 10:13am48 is a 40mm steel case auto. 176 is a 44mm Ti case hand-wound. Very, very different choices. I find the 44mm HW fits closer to the wrist and more comfortable than the 40mm autos. The 44mm HW is more "historic" and more representative of the Panerai brand, so it would be the one I would favor of the two, but that's just me. Plus, I like the lighter weight and darker mat grey of the Ti.post #29069 of 483122/13/14 at 10:15am
Question guys: I was watching a video about the Longines Conquest or that name and the guy was saying that the manufacturer in the manual says that the date should not be change between 4 and 8. I was wondering if that is a standard on every mechanical watch.post #29070 of 483122/13/14 at 10:18amQuote:
Keith, that's lovely! I like the 38mm size, but I'm torn between original and new versions: there's less subdial overlap on the original version, but the new version has a glass caseback.
