Hey Stitchy, are you sure it was not the PO 2500? That did have a solid caseback.

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

Thanks!

Hmmmm, dont recall. But the dude was super sketchy. Would probably not have bought even if I could have been sure it was legit.

That is, basically the PO I want to get except in titanium. Was it sketchy fake, or sketchy stolen goods?

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.

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.

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.

48 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.

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.

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.
