  1. Pretty cool when you know that the dial on your watch is 4 billion years old, it has travelled through space for millions of years before it crashed with our earth 600 million years ago. Basel 2019 .. anyone ?
  2. Started with FSM myself. And grew into a pationate interest for airplanes Just received an overhead panel, tricky part is to configure all the stuff ..
  3. Thanks Legend. When it matters pations and hobbies we don't always spend our money wisely
  4. Thanks mate. That what I started with too. Actually that was the most fun, because that is when I learned what all the [censored]s and stuff was for. Not to mention when I had my first ILS landing. Think that was the best simulator experience I ever had, because I spent so much time learning how to figure it out
  5. Being a bit more than average interested in airplanes I have been using the Microsoft Flight Simulator for some years. Functions are pretty much same as on real airplanes. Since boys never grow up I took it a bit further and got myself a cockpit replica of a Boeing 737. Pretty cool to have a beer and a flight actually. Some friends who have been afraid of flying actually feel more confident after playing with it since they know more about how safe it really is Guess I need a Breitling now.
  6. I obviously know which is fake and which is not. Looking at the dial very close I can spot one mistake, the Rolex logo is not 100% adjusted on the fake. Doesn't show too good on the images though. Was not aware of the difference between the pushers. Can see it now though, but have to say that fakes are getting seriosuly identical nowadays.
  7. Hi all. Getting married soon and was sure of one thing regarding to which to wear. It had to be a Daytona 116509. White or Yellow gold was the big question though. So I bought the one I finally decided for. However, I bought a fake version of the one I left out. For me it is difficult to see which one is fake. I can only feel it when I hold both in my hands, the genuine is 3 times as heavy. Guess the experts here can spot a difference within seconds
  8. Thanks alot for the recommendation of using SSTEEL !! He has fixed the watch now and the whole process was such a good experience that I almost hope it breaks down again so I can use his services one more time Thumbs up for an extremly service minded and great watchsmith!
  9. So this is not something a watchsmith would be able to fix fast and easy? It is basicaly a bad movement?
  10. Thanks a lot Sogeha ! I might try my local one and hope he doesn't throw me out of the shop .. If he does I will contact the Belgium one, I travel there several times every year.
  11. I bought a AD Royal Oak on a shopping mall in Malaysia a while ago. A beauteful peace of art actually, and I payed $600 for it. The seller claimed it was from JF factory. I have a problem though. I goes like a charm for some days but suddenly it stop. Makes no difference if I wind it manually or shake it like if I was epileptic. Then suddenly it starts working again after several hours. Not too keen to take it to a watch dealer here since it is obviously is a fake watch. But will do if that is the only solution to make it work fine since it is way too cool to throw away. What would a wise man do?
