    Lovely 16570 [​IMG]

    I've got my eye on one myself (P-series). Does anybody know if all P-series comes with the solid end link
    bracelet (78790)?


    Yes, SEL was installed from late A-series onwards.

    After a long phase of Panerai and JLC, I've been wearing a fair bit of Rolex vintage or transitional models, recently:

    Nice collection of yellowed tritium dials you have there.

    I am in fact wearing the same model today - a 165.024 from 1967 on a "MoD grey" NATO. But this one bears more scars, aging and patina than yours... [​IMG]

    New build?

    /M


    I've seen yours, the patina is lovely [​IMG]

    It is indeed a new build, straight outta WatchCo. Purists may not appreciate, but I enjoy it, all original but still like new.

    Nonserviam, you have an enviable collection. I've never seen a NATO strap like that before -- looks cool.
    Thank you! The collection is starting to settle now, the beginner's mistakes and impulsive buys are weeded out and the remains are probably going to stay for quite a while. (Famous last words ...) I believe Singular has a braided strap in his webshop [​IMG]

    Nice watches, but I can't help but notice that for the most part, they seem rather large for your wrists.

    aged lume on those rolexes above is just [​IMG]

    anyone own the iwc mark xvi? i know it gets mixed reviews on here but it's really growing on me. i miss the simplicity of my 36mm explorer 1 (do not like the new version), and was thinking of picking up the iwc as a one-watch. any comments?

    Mark XV/XVI is a superb onewatch - does it all, is tough enough for using everyday but is still discrete enough to not look completely out-of-place to more elegant/formal clothes (especially on a strap). In addition to this it is somewhat under the radar, but still recognizable for those who appreciate it.

    I tend to favour the XV (due to the less ooooomphy dial/hands design), and I'd think that old British aviators would certainly agree that something is fishy with the latest incarnation of a IWC Mark bearing a German dial design...
