    Not really a lot of info. How long ago did you see it? Was it new or pre-owned? How complicated? My father previously owned a Patek 5015 in yg. It had black hands, a white porcelain dial, and subdials for small seconds, moonphase, and power reserve. I also liked the officer's case with gold hinged back, which could be opened to a saphire display back to show the movement. It could also have been PAtek 5054 which was almost the same except for different bezel, Roman Numerals, and they added a date around the moonphase. Those might be two of my best guesses. Many of Pateks complicated pieces use gold hands rather than black. There have also been some very basic time only Patek's with hob nail bezels that had black hands and often a hob nail bezel. Good luck.
    One of the few clothing brands using nice movements is Ralph Lauren. Many of his watches use JLC movements. But for what they cost, I'd rather have a JLC watch.

    First post in this thread as I've (hopefully) got something worthy of posting from a recent black tie event I went to.

    Bought this watch a few months ago for my 21st birthday as its a Rolex Cellini from 1991! Much prefer vintage rolex's to any of the current offerings, just a shame I don't get enough events to get wear it!

    Nice find! Very cool vintage Omega...although I'm not a fan of the strap. Some of their designs from the 70s are a lot of fun.
    Congrats on your Cellini. They are often overlooked in favor of their Oyster cased siblings, but they are a nice choice. Enjoy it and find occasions to wear it to. Don't just save it for black tie events.

    I do believe that the vintage Dynamics come with that type of strap. It was integral to the design. I think it's very cool. The Cellini is very cool too.

    it is. movt looks like a very basic unmodfied 7750. however, the rubi description states its a 49 jewel...which i find odd. standard 7750 has 23 jewels, and a rolex sub has 31 jewels. i cant name any watch offhand at the moment with a 49 jewel movement. oh well. if anyone is in love with them, wait a few years and youll see em on ebay for a couple hundred.

    i think that for what movement i imagine is in the watch, it is likely overpriced. but, if one has the cash, and is only concerned with looks, why not? there is far worse out there, for more.


    +1 to the jewel count. i also noticed that and was taken aback. there some langes i think with jewel counts that high, maybe it was GO, but defo german. and some other swiss high multi complication models, but for a watch like that, 49 is very odd.

    :confused:
