  1. Hello thegrail,

     

    I love this kind of response on my ads, it's very good to encourage buyers.

    For information Esdee is an artist who manufactures himself small series of Panerai (Mille Metri, welded lugs, radiomir ...), he lives in US, well known on Homageforum.com (for me one of the most specialized and qualitative site for those who want advices and like high grade rep)

    His watches aren’t made in Asia, when Esdee is decided he "offers" a small series of watches in subscription, it’s necessary to preorder your watch and pay a deposit, then you have only to wait, I waited a year for the Mille Metri and 1 year 1/2 for a welded lugs.

    My Mille Metri cost me $1.250 + $190 for new ETA (same as gen MM) + gen Bonatto strap + EFL buckle + blue cardboard box, fees, like new, total approx. $1.610.

    Mille Metri of Esdee has been tested by buyers at 600m (water resistance), I doubt that Trusty manufactures watches as waterproof.

    I think the price isn’t surprising for those who like quality watches, it's the market price for the rare Esdee watches that are on sale (welded lugs are less expensive because much easier to make).

    Best regards.

  2. Congratulations Steph Dexter, your PreV boxes ($1.550) and notices ($370) for sale on ebay like gen by an italian seller, it's the beginning of glory. Panerai will soon be contacting you to make boxes for a special 201 / A reissue series. Hi friend. https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Very-Rare-Panerai-5218-wood-box-Pre-Vendome-1993-Nos/222900868056?hash=item33e5ed53d8:g:WggAAOSwnMBaiDqK https://www.ebay.fr/itm/Booklet-Panerai-5218-Pre-Vendome-1993-Nos/222897197308?hash=item33e5b550fc:g:FWEAAOSwUWZanapp

    FX + Rolli + FGD + DSN Pre-A 002 Mashup

    Beautiful Rolli dials but Pre-A case needs first series Vendôme crown guard, it's the main difference with current Vendôme production. My 5218-201/A in his gen box with gen PreV screwdriver and handtag.

    Mare Nostrum PAM 716 Chronograph

    42mm is the exact size of the original 5218-301/A Mare Nostrum, 5218-302 Slytech Mare Nostrum and 5218-304 Slytech Mare Nostrum (bezel without graduation). It's a re-edition to the original Pre-V MN with same caliber ETA 2801-2 fitted with a Dubois-Dèpraz chronograph module, I don't see why they would have changed the size. For once a re-edition is exactly similar! I think there are already enough choices in bigger size from Panerai. Who has already been able to wear a PAM300 (52mm) without his table neighbor saying "WAOU you can attach a clock on your wrist?" PAM716 is a good marketing stunt for Panerai, but be aware that this wasn't a very good deal at the time for OP S.p.A, they have long been stocked and 435 unsold were transferred to Vendome group in 1997. 1000 Mare Nostrum 301/A were manufactured by OP S.p.A (990 + 10 prototype), on this 1000 MN, 489 was sold by OP S.p.A, 397 transferred to the Vendome Group, 100 used to make Slytech watches, 7 given as prizes, 3 gifted to Com.Sub.In, 2 sold to MM, 2 given to MM and on the 100 Slytech 31 MN302 sol by OP S.p.A, 19 MN302 transferred to the Vendome Group - same number for MN304. I like this Panerai, it's an atypical Panerai but it has charm and is unique. But sincerely I find it stupid to buy a re-edition at 10,000 € while looking for a bit we find the original pre-V MN with mahogany box, Pre-V screwdriver, original strap and libretto at 12,000€ !

    Popping my PAM cherry. A Davidsen PAM195.

    Pam195 is a great watch and davidsen a great guy, but I still don't understand why he kept making cases with an off-center crown shaft up the watch, and a bezel with a much too small flat, his watches May be perfect but it continues with the same faults. And we see at 10 meters that it is a Davidsen. We can't change dial with gen dial or Rolli dial (too thick). Damage, there wouldn't be much to do to make them perfect. Davidsen make good crown, good crownguard, beautiful PVD, Pre_v case back with good markings and it should do the same with its cases. It is a regret rather than a criticism.
  8. Do you have more 203 dial picture ?

    PAM 036 L swiss L on the bay

    Pam 036 on sale on bay. No serial number on the case, L swiss L dial..., I prefer Pam036 with T dial, but it's still a nice watch. It's a shadow edition, which means there are no serial number on it, because it was given to a an employee and then he sold it. http://www.ebay.fr/itm/Panerai-PAM-36-Marina-Militare-LimitedEdition-Tobacco-Dial-EXTREMELY-RARE-/181793195562?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2a53b8062a

    Quality watch box

    I don't understand why they make beautiful box with gross errors like two screws on the bottom hinge instead of one on gen (seen 2 meters it's fake). Too bad.
  15. Search a specialist engraving Marking movement (Prefer in EU). For engraving movement ETA 6497 "ADJUSTED FOUR POSITIONS..." (rounded in Gold) and some others engraving. If someone have a contact. Thank.
