Kaplan, were you right?

Yes! Good job nod[1].gif

Of course, it's a Rolex Oysterquartz, mod 17000, 6.4 mil serial number, making it a 1980 vintage. Silver dial, and in a mint condition.

All the bells and whistles: Inner and outer box, leaflets, punched papers.

And even the original blue dial. A spectacular blue color, but the last owner had it changed for a silver one.

Sold locally here in Norway, that's nice.

The seller had a new battery installed, and we met at a local watchmaker who also shortened the bracelet. Just perfect!

I'm sorry for the mobile pictures and lack of more info, but I'll be back with proper shots and more thoughts on the watch. So far I can say that it is indeed both descreet and loud, a very audible TICK smile.gif Thanks!


Fantastic...very esclusive

Beautiful combination ... really fantastic.

Anyone got any strong views for or against a Chronoswiss Regulaetuer CH1223SW? I've been offered one 7 years old at GB£2500

Some of the accompanying blurb I got -

"The French regulator style popularised by Breguet is an unusual yet captivating way to design a watch dial. The Enicar-based movement features gold chatons, the dial is beautifully silvered and the hands a rich blue. If a dressy, French-styled regulator is something you’ve got a hankering for, you won’t find better without spending a lot more"

I have a regulator dial watch. Love the look. It takes a little while for the brain to get used to reading time at a glance on one though.

I personally like Chronoswiss. Cool company run by a cool guy. I like the classic aesthetic as well. But that's a personal thing.

I love the look of the Sub on Mrs. TC. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Was kinda on the fence about subs before, but now...
