Fakes. (Refering to top pic. Alas.)

After a bit more research is appears to be something in the 26-32mm range. Maybe an oyster perpetual. I don't think it is an explorer.

LOL, awesome. The first pic of her was so much better . . . what a disappointment.

I will reserve judgement on this one for an in-person review.  It is always better to touch and hold a piece as pictures can be deceiving.

Same here, TC.

JB - no need to touch to judge. One can tell by the curves of the lugs. Big tell-tales. Pun intended.

Funny enough, watched Alien 3 DC last night, as part of a 4 nights rerun. What a piece of overlong drivel. Fincher can do wrong after all.
Back to 'melting', attempts to drown said Alien in molten lead failed... but you all know that.

Ps: On thread topic, feel a personal melt-down coming. Blaming Dino.

Considering this in trade. I am not up on my Explorer I models but I am interested. Does this bring any questions to mind that I could ask the seller?

I don't have any Explorer info to contribute, but you might want to ask the seller for a pic showing the amount of bracelet stretch, which a lot of sellers will include in their listings.

I'm sure others will chime in with specific Explorer I knowledge and preowned watch buying checklists.

Is it just me, or does that caseback look kinda rough compared to the rest of the watch?

Not necessarily a deal-killer, but considering the sticker is still there...just seems a bit incongruous.

That may be of little or no concern to Monsieur Rooster, of course, and it does seem in decent condition overall.

I would say it's priced competitively, for a recently-serviced piece with the indicated accessories.

Plus, IMHO Explorers are great watches icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

I thought the sticker was causing that look.
post #34917 of 48312
It's definitely the sticker, that thing gets nasty if you don't remove it and then wear it for years.
post #34918 of 48312
Fair enough then.

I've never been one to keep the decals on the watch anyway.

I also take them off my New Era caps.... but that's just how I roll.
post #34919 of 48312
I would remove it for sure.

Thanks for the input, Wes and Keith.

Wasn't he like 19 when he directed that though? And he came in at short notice, looking at Alien 4 its a masterpiece.

Then you look at prometheus......I think I prefer Alien 3 over that as well!
