1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I bet you do the cryptic crosswords to! Audibly loud...very smart call. :)


    That layout of the 62/103 is just perfect. I know it's just a bit of quirky Panerai-ness, but I just can't love the dials where they drop one of the numbers. It's OK when both the "3" and "9" are gone, but just one makes it look one-eyed. The most accessible current model with this layout seems to be the 504. Any recommendations for an older/cheaper model in this configuration? I know some of you folks have dozens of models from memory...

    I will have agonised dreams of the 62 tonight I think.

    None come to mind immediately if you want small seconds.

    Several if you are willing to give up the seconds hand

    Does anybody have an idea how much it would cost to replace an oscillator in an old Omega Seamaster? Or would it even be possible? I know very little about watch repair...

    So, I picked up my new watch today :slayer:

    [​IMG]

    Kaplan, were you right?

    [​IMG]

    Yes! Good job :nodding:

    [​IMG]

    Of course, it's a Rolex Oysterquartz, mod 17000, 6.4 mil serial number, making it a 1980 vintage. Silver dial, and in a mint condition.

    [​IMG]

    All the bells and whistles: Inner and outer box, leaflets, punched papers.

    [​IMG]

    And even the original blue dial. A spectacular blue color, but the last owner had it changed for a silver one.

    [​IMG]

    Sold locally here in Norway, that's nice.

    [​IMG]

    The seller had a new battery installed, and we met at a local watchmaker who also shortened the bracelet. Just perfect!

    [​IMG]

    I'm sorry for the mobile pictures and lack of more info, but I'll be back with proper shots and more thoughts on the watch. So far I can say that it is indeed both descreet and loud, a very audible TICK :) Thanks!
