Coolest watch eva but methinks "Y" was the absolute first...

Buy this watch boys and girls. Some folks overseas are asking around 15k for this same watch...

No changes and still Mark I dial...

Took me 3 years to find NIB...

An obsession is still an obsession...;-)

Correct me if I'm wrong!!

My research had F first then Y, which was a mid-year switch. But that wasn't totally clear to me. Either way, the flat 4 is the giveaway.

Wait, where overseas is this going for 15, and where can I find those people?

Download the Chrono24 app if you don't already have it. Lists a few Y and a F saying first year. They look to have a nice premium asking over the other years. This should help with your sale!

You wind it from one side and view the time from the opposite side. It's actually a modified HMX here: MB&F HMX Watch For Brand's 10th Anniversary Priced At 'Only' $30,000 | aBlogtoWatch

When you wore that to the Ginger Man I nearly commented that you had a nice example of the 2nd year edition.

Sorry for delay. I am on vacation in San Diego and not really checking in on life. The enicar is a 1960s model and so is the gold tri-compax. Will try to post another picture as it appears my first attempt failed.

Hah!

I will be back up around the third week of April. I will see you guys then and compare notes.

In the interim, if you have any thoughts on what I should Rhino Line on my pristine 95 NAS, kindly let me know...

If you have the under-hood paint code sticker, I'd do a spot test there, then work my way back.

Meaning was it an intentional design change to the font style, manufactured in error, or other?
Of the 3355 Submariner's for sale on myChrono24, only 12 have the "Fat Four" Unique for sure. The 16610** for $$$$ and 14060M for $.

They tend to be very brand specific, so pick a manufacturer and just search for a forum dedicated. There are countless Rolex forums, Paneristi is still active, etc.

Your best bet to buy watches (new or used) is to make a friend who is a dealer...there is a lot of money to be saved buying that way. Never use a retail storefront, at least not initially.

Anyone interested in a Breitling Superocean Heritage 44? Like new, comes with box, manual, warranty card. Case and crystal are excellent. Rubber strap is very comfortable. Keeps impeccable time.


Great watch, but trying to raise funds for a Sinn.


Retails for $5600. I'm happy with $3150 insured and shipped. Will take a Sinn in trade. Send me a PM if interested.
