Jeez, I am lovin' that BP FF. Definitely one of my favorite divers. If only they made it in a more reasonable size, it would definitely be on my radar.

I'm still thinking a dark brown would look good too, just havent gotten around to it.

Just my 0.02, navy padded croc with contrast stitching for the El Primero looks nice in my mind's eye.

Can anyone help me identify the watch the model is wearing in this video?

I've linked to the time where the watch is most visible (2:30). It might be obvious, but I don't have a lot of experience with wristwatches shog[1].gif

It could be any number. That is a fairly common type of watch--it just depends on how much you want to spend.

Agree.

Anyone selling a Rolex Submariner ?
post #11288 of 31067
A campaign launched by Nick Hacko, who some of you might have heard of. I have bought a number of watches of Nick over the last few years, and his passion to watch making/collecting/restoration is amazing.

Its a petition against the monopoly that major Swiss watch houses have on parts and services. This not only pisses me off in terms of markups (often more than 1000%) but also is a huge business blow to traditional watchmakers and repairers.

If you feel inclined, please support.

An absolutely worthwhile and important cause - everyone (especially any fellow Aussies) please sign the petition and return it to Nick!

Omega + Leica = win. Many lapel-widths ago, I had this exact watch in 18k on bracelet - now I'm sorry I sold it!

Hard to say for sure but it looks like there's a small subdial at 3pm - so I'm thinking one of those bicompax GP 1945 chronos

I've been thinking about getting a speedy for some time now. I came across this one

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/260994558574?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1438.l2649

I'm worried that it might be too good to be true. What does "Watch is at the showroom in Shenzhen." mean, is this from China?

His feedback is decent, but there is nothing of value there...nothing that I can view and many of them are random things like "great recipe".

I don't have lots of money to spend on watches, and I can't afford my whole watch fund to be flushed chasing a good deal...


...and if it's good, please nobody here snag up this item!

Looks may be deceiving.  The only photo of the watch may be the one with the box, others appear to be stock shots.  I'd ask if the photos were of the actual watch.  Lots of fake Speedies out there, esp from PRC. Caveat Emptor.  May want to ask the experts at Timezone or the Purists for their opinion.  PM.

There is a store, east coast US, that gives deals on new Omegas.  Check out the TZ or Purists and ask for the name.  Very good prices on the genuine article.  I would much rather buy from those 2 sites than Ebay for a watch.  That way if it's fake, they would never be able to show their face again.  I've bought and sold a few watches from TZ and Purists with very good success.
