Wait you're younger than me? This is a painful blow.

Funny enough I bought this watch off a guy trying to sell it to tournau. They offered him peanuts. I offered peanuts and raisins. Watch came with the box, papers, date card, etc.

how did you find it? Where you in the store? No Rolex yet. I have a Panerai #161,Omega, and my favorite is a Oris dive watch.

The guy was trying to sell it. The store was telling him it is old. I literally said I will give you a dollar more than the store. I gave him my contact info and he called me the next day.

The condition of that one looks way better than the others. I wonder what grade stainless they use/used...looks like it gets pretty easily beat-up.

The nice thing about these watches is they polish easily. However purists say that polishing devalues. I personally wouldn't have an issue buying a scratched up one, doing a light polish. I guess the issue is that over time polishing wears the case down.

black. =) soft-tops always sell for more!

i keep looking but i am a brat when it come to condition. i need to save for a little longer and buy a "newer" one.

------ Follow up post added November 28th, 2011 01:16 PM ------

the last one is a great looking watch. it seems like 4k is the magic number.

------ Follow up post added November 28th, 2011 01:18 PM ------

i really need to start selling all my d-90 goodies if i am going buy one of these.
