    I was going to say, that has to be Gen. Just look at that balance spring assembly and the crisp edging on the power reserve cut out. Damn beautiful piece you have there, wear her in good health!

    One for the experts...

    So, I have been looking into getting one of the ingenieur vintage laureus sport for good reps, and a friend of mine has one he is willing to sell to me. However, he can't remember where he got it or from which factory this comes from. So, I ask the pros here if they may be able to tell which version this is from a few pics, if you may be so kind... Thanks guys and gals! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Which would you choose?

    Thanks for the input, guys. I appreciate them, as honestly the 003 is probably my favorite white Pam model. However, the 2 listed are what he has available, so maybe I should reword the title to show 'which should I choose'? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Which would you choose?

    Alright guys, so I have a quick question for our experts here on selecting a watch I am taking in on a trade. I have gotten an itch for a white dialed Pam, and am trading away my Swiss 2824 JLC NSD for one of the following, unmodified watches: Noob 251 or Z factory 499 1950s case. Now, I like the look of both, and the difference in case dimensions isn't a big deal to me. However, based on availability, movement, etc., which of these 2 would you guys go with? I don't prefer one over the other, and am curious to see which one we think is the better value? Also, should I be asking for cash my way for the trade with either of these? Last note here, I know that each of these utilize the quick release lug system. Has anyone here had any luck with fitting a new style bracelet from a Noob 299 on either of these? Thanks for your input! Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G891A using Tapatalk

    Happy Little JLC NSD Accident

    Here are the pictures as promised. Though the strap has the Deep Blue logo on it and is not sterile as many, myself included, would hope, it does the job quite nicely. What do you guys think? Sent from my LG-D850 using Tapatalk

    Happy Little JLC NSD Accident

    So, over the last two weeks I have been selling off a few gen pieces on Watchuseek to build some funds for our lovely hobby, and took in a few trades as well to keep the collection ever changing. I managed to get my hands on a quartz 1000m diver from Deep Blue, the Sea Quest, in their red metallic sunray dial, and am very impressed with the overall build quality (having not owned a Deep Blue since their budding days, just before and around the time they started showing on ShopNBC). Anyways, back to the reason that I am posting this in regards to the JLC Navy Diver... I noticed that the lug positioning on this Deep Blue is VERY close to the case, and it reminded me of how tight of a fit there is with the JLC, so I decided to see just how well the black caoutchouc strap could work. Lo and behold, the strap fits almost perfectly as any semi curved leather strap would fit on a JLC like this. Though it does not fit exactly up to the edge of the case, it is tight enough to hide any major gap between the strap and case, and holds very nicely underneath the case due to its' design. I do not have any picutres of the fit right now, but will snap some tonight and post them for any curious NSD owners looking for a nice alternative to the straight edged caoutchouc straps out there. Have fun!

    Do you sleep with a watch on?

    I actually have a 'bedtime watch' collection of thinner Casios and a Timex expedition for this while my other watches rest overnight in their winders. Sure, my phone is on my nightstand not more than 2 feet away, but it's so much easier just to press the back-light button on one of these than reach over for my phone or sit up to try to read the digital clock on the other side of the room. The wrist feels naked otherwise, and it lessens the possibility of having nightmares that my watches were stolen, lol.
  8. Hey guys and gals, I was just cruising over on the big 'ol Bay site looking for some parts and stumbled across this lot. It looks to be legit, sourced at a watch maker's sale (possibly retired, who knows). There appear to be some nice parts here, as well as some very worn dials and such, but it comes with a clean looking SS bracelet reference 78350 as well as a case back removal tool (likely Bergeon). http://www.ebay.com/itm/lot-Rolex-Oyster-Perpetual-Date-Datejust-Airking-cases-Dials-and-Crystals-/201412935173?hash=item2ee5257e05 Sadly I do not have the funds to swing this myself right now, but thought that I might post here for you guys to see if anyone is interested. Assuming that there is enough interest, I would think that the $1,650 invested could rather easily be made back by parting cases and dials out to others of us that want them. The only caveat for now appears that the 'buy it now' ends in the next 5 or so hours, so I would take a look fast if you are interested. *** This Ebay account does not belong to myself or anyone that I know, I am simply mentioning a possible good deal here for those that are looking to complete any projects that they have open, which require any of the parts offered in this eBay sale. The seller looks to be trustworthy and has good feedback, so it appears that, given going prices of Rolex dials and cases, this could be one heck of a deal for someone interested. Good Luck!
  9. Those chamfered edges really do set off the mid-case quite nicely on that piece! I especially like the orangish tan colored strap with the PO. It's a shame though, on the black strap, that the lug stitching is ever so slightly off between the two sides @ the 6:00 lugs. Otherwise, spectacular leather work, as expected from Simona!
  10. I'm with you Drop. Could get a nice Tudor for that price, and personally I would much rather go for a Tudor Heritage Blue than one of these if I had a Gen chrono on my radar.

    PAM 634; WTF were they thinking?

    I was thinking the same thing before it became known that it is a snap back design > 'That's an odd looking caseback for PAM, where are the edge cuts?' I get that they may have been trying to differentiate their special order case and such from any other PAM, but why go this route? Panerai likely had to have special molds and machining made to have this case made, as none other like this exists in their catalog. This is all speculation, but going the route to make a cheaper case while having to likely spend more money on production instead of just using the case from, say a Base 000? This sounds ludicrous to me, especially to cheapen the product for the one group of people on the planet that tout their product as the most amazing thing ever? I would be extremely surprised if there isn't an uproar from the Paneristi community on their custom end product being this way. Personally, I would rather take ANY other base model over the 634.

    Does it get any better than this?

    Love the construction on old Guild acoustics! And your Big Crown too, of course!

    $70...are you kidding me?!?!

    Very nice buy! I had that 183 in my sights as well, but the better man won. Looks good!

    Teaching people how to read the time:

    It's amazing what can be done with the right design and construction. It looks like it is completely random, but the way that the hour pinion is set up (this is a very overly simplified explanation on my part), it forces a 5 space jump ahead to the correct marking. It's spaced just enough that the design seems to be more magical than it is, but that is what makes it fun, right? A buddy of mine comes into the clock shop where I work every so often and wears either this (Gen) or his old Gen Speedmaster. The Crazy Hours always gets more attention from people.
