    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.

    Is that about the size of a pocket watch?

    It IS a pocket watch. Or was. Poteto patata.

    This


    please explain!

    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
