Love it! Been dreaming of the blue dialed version, perhaps one from the seventies.

Agreed, that's why I bought the Skindiver the morning the shopping cart on the Helson site became live.

you need to read his auctions carefully. That is the person I bought my watch from

the Longines that I bought is all original everything (case, dial, movement), which is what attracted me to it

A lot of the watches have original parts, but the entire piece is not original
Example
http://cgi.ebay.ca/Jaeger-LeCoultre-...-/230617793885

Original Jaeger movement, but it's housed in a new custom case to convert the pocket watch into a wrist watch.
Also, the blue hands are new and custom.
The (seemingly) original dial was refurbished.


So you'll have to just read carefully and you'll find what you like
