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.

    People that collect watches are two steps removed from people that collect old Sega videogames.

    How about "Tranformers?"

    Am I the only one who doesn't like Breitling?

    Not a fan, either.

    I agree that their current offerings are really atrocious, but the stuff from the 60's, for my tastes at least, are really excellent. [​IMG] [​IMG] I am a sucker for vintage carreras as well, especially with "panda-eye" subdials. [​IMG] My own small-timer post - Carrera Twin-time and an Oris XXL Worldtimer. Currently looking for an 1808 chrono-matic as shown above or perhaps a 1045 Omega Speedmaster. [​IMG]

    those Carreras are sweet! What do they go for, if you don't mind me asking?

    Two tasteful Tag Heuers in one thread. Is the thread long enough, I wonder.

    ^^^ That is from the 19th century. I'm not a vintage expert, but that movement, with its extra long regulator needle, is almost certainly a genuine IWC "Jones" caliber. The plate configuration looks identical to that of the other Jones calibers I've seen and the dial looks correct. On the face, I see no reason to doubt the watch's authenticity.

    However, your best best is to join the Collector's Forum at IWC's official site (iwc.ch) and ask the experts there.

    I'm not doubting the authenticity at all, rather, the value of a piece like this compared to the ask.

    the guy is trustworthy, but he is a salesman (takes on to know one [​IMG] ) and I'm just trying to set the bar of how much it might cost +/- say, $500-$1k

    I was just answering your question about whether it's a legitimate IWC movement. I have no idea what its value is.
