Sorry for your loss @AlexJ1100 Good dogs make great memories.

First great LP finds in 2016. Some awesome spoken word stuff on Caedmon, including Ginsberg doing William Blake and my personal fave of VINCENT PRICE reading Shelley poems.

The best ressources for nice watches is not necessarly Ebay but most likely dedicated watch forums with a sales corner.
i don't know how familiar with these but the two biggest contender in this category are:
Watchuseek : http://forums.watchuseek.com/f29/
Timezone : http://forums.timezone.com/index.php?t=threadt&frm_id=32&rid=0&start=1

you have search options for both, but most likely you'll have to search regularly for new listings because they tend to go fast.

in Europe you have Uk forums like TZ-UK http://forum.tz-uk.com/forum.php (where I got my EZM1!), but they require to register before being able to see the sales corner I believe. in French the sales corner from Chronomania is a reference ( http://cda.chronomania.net/forum.php )

there are also website selling pre owned watches. But here you kind of have to check the feedback and seriousness of the store beforehand.
IIRC Chronomaster is a serious one for example : http://www.chronomaster.co.uk/omega/watches/

Oh and I almost forgot Chrono24 : http://www.chrono24.com/en/search/index.htm?query=omega+seamaster+vintage&dosearch=true&searchexplain=true but this is more like Ebay... you have all kind of sellers from all over the world...

Edit: A while ago there were a handful of Japanese seller that would put these crazy auction of speedmaster and other omegas (including rare limited editions etc...). It was a small "insider" knowledge that these sellers would put mint watches that would be sold at the best prices. But eventually it became common knowledge, speedmasters became quite popular and it wasn't as interesting anymore...
edit2: ah i found him! sabashioyakiz1
I got my Omega Dynamic Chrono from him! 7 years ago. seems he's still putting crazy Omegas on auction. biggrin.gif

that said, there was a very sweet, very vintage iwc at one of my places. they wanted 5 bills. boo.

Pretty sure that PRL is a SC especially with that throat latch. If it's an orphan, it's very sportcoatable.

I agree. The pocket and button setup made me a little unsure though.
