    Good Friday WRUW

  2. I apologise, I didn't see it at a first glance. I guess it can be deleted now.
  3. https://www.seiyajapan.com/blogs/news/sayonara Unfortunately, this is true. If you still want to get some of the few left - refer to: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SEIKO-SARB017-Mechanical-Alpinist-Automatic-Men-s-Leather-Watch-UK-TAX-FREE/272353793994?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160908103841%26meid%3D2cfb8f471a394091865baaae4584ab9e%26pid%3D100227%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dag%26sd%3D272353793994%26itm%3D272353793994&_trksid=p2054502.c100227.m3827 I just got one to keep Cheers and HAGWE Dimi

      ill post a pix.  when I find it.   it is the old style "dentist drill"   the one with all the pulleys, belts and arms.  they were usually "floor mounted"  this one was "surplused" by the air corps. actually the dremel works better.  vin

      Oh,these are no longer used. Not sure whether I can help you as  I am pretty young for them ( 35 yrs old ) .

      I don't even remember seeing one of these in flesh.

    First Rolex

    It is similar to buying a car from a private seller, a local dealer or an AD. For every next step you pay surcharge but it usually comes with some benefits. Cheers Dimi

    First Rolex

    I didn`t want anything flashy or blingy. I wanted a toolwatch, brushed and useful as functions, comfy to wear and to please myself with the heritage, craftmanship and brand,but not the others. If this makes sense at all Cheers Dimi

    First Rolex

    Thank you ,guys! Well,not sure whether I depicted it correctly - the guy from Watches of Switzerland said that the watch has been sent to official service center and it has been put to as new condition , including servicing, regulating to old Rolex standards ( +6/-4 sec/day), 2 years warranty for this, 7 years interval for the next service ,starting from the day of purchase; new gaskets for the caseback and the tube. Unfortunately , they sell pretty high, as plus 4K ,but if you buy it from a private seller without the service history and the set, then you will end up with playing significant amount of money for servicing or repair. Anyway, WoS give 12 months interest free finance and some warranty as peace of mind and when you are crazy enough to jump - the rest is predictable. Cheers Dimi

    First Rolex

    So, being an Omega guy, always kept me away from the dark side ( Rolex) ,but recently it started growing on me more and more. I have always liked the GMT function and the Pepsi bezel, but the price of GMT Master 2 is getting higher every year and I think I am not still " big enough" to indulge myself with it. So I started thinking of Explorer 2 - 16570. Black or white, it didn't matter. I haven't considered Sub as I already have a SMP 2531.80 Bond and the sub is too iconic, too flashy, too recognisable,too burglar's choice. The funny think is I have never tried it on. Anyway, later on I decided that I preferred a brand new one ,but the current version is too big for my wrists ( 215670) so I decided to go for 214270 39 mm, longer hands and luminous 3,6,9. Yesterday I received a call from the local AD in Brighton that they have it in stock and today I went there with the idea to buy it ( note that I haven't tried it on before too). Well, it was a nice watch in deed, but again too flashy, to crispy edges, somehow we didn't bond. It didn't sit so comfortably on my wrist ( for reference I was with a Speedy Pro 3570.50 today, which is a very comfortable watch to wear). Accidentally , I spotted a 2nd hand Explorer 2 , 16570,black face, with box and papers,flly services and refurbished and 2 years warranty. I just asked to have a look and the decision came by itself. My first Rolex ! Hopefully,not the last one. Cheers. Dimi

    I wouldn't buy such an item from a seller with 0 feedback no matter the country of origin. But I would if the feedback as seller (not as buyer) was significant. Cheers
