Davidsen 113 White dial review

Recommended Posts

Oh yeah! After 3 weeks research + Study all the review of Mr.DSN. Yesterday, I pull the trigger at my 5th rep but the 1st PAM 113 White dial. Because shipment from HK to HK; I got my stunning 113 this afternoon as Mr.DSN promise. A little be nervous when I open my package; good + well packed ---->1 plastic bag + around by bubble-plastic of my 113 watch-head, & 2 seperate 115mm X 75mm Buffalo grain leather strap for my 15.3cm thinny-hand(1 Black + 1brown)....As usal a pair of extra springbar also included. (But no PANERAI leather key-ring...)

I must clearly say that my 113 white dial is a NEW-VERSION as Mr.DSN post before; Let take a quick review as below:

1.) In some review of Mr.DSN product; members complain about the lug-screw problem---->there's no thread in lug-hole. I got no such problem at both lug-hole. Both lug-hole was threaded ; so springbar are fit , tight & smooth during my installation of straps.

2.) Post 113 white dial have a flaw of 2 dots at 12 o'clock a little be too far from each others. Mine version are close as GEN. However; "L Swiss Made L" fonts are still too small & "Swiss" not at right place it should be. But this not bother me one bit; I can get along with it.

3.) My movement is Swiss 6479 with functional DAGGER not NEEDLE swan-neck; I check the photo on Official Panerai site it should be DAGGER rather than NEEDLE. That's Great!

4.) The "OFFINCE PANERAI" blue engrave on movement still a little be outlined but not serious. Also; I can get along with it too.

5.) Crown-Guard in post version are polished. This made a serious discussion of this main flaw when post version establish; but in my new version. CG already Brushed. Woo! Mr.DSN score again!

6.) C3 superlumed dial + hand are good & strong. Compare with my collection of 4th rep before (16610LV, EXPII, IWC 3717, Daytona 116509). Under NOT charged situation; 113 is the strongest lume I had. After charged; both hand lume just like a Jedi lightsaber in Star Wars! I love it!

Within this 8 hours from I received my 113; I'm very very happy about this rep. Because last 4th rep I own; each one have got 1 or 2 flaws during their arrivial. But until now; I can't found any flaw in my new 113 & absolutely out of my expectation.

One last thing need to be review ---> the accuracy; Is it like Mr.DSN said that movement are already well serviced + calibrated? After several days later we'll know the truth. Until now I vote positive to Mr.DSN modded 113 for our members. Will I purchase again? I say YES without any hestiation. :thumbsupsmileyanim:

Sorry I can't get several photos of my 113 as my Digital camera had been borrowed by my little brother. i'm here to attach 3 photos which send by Mr.DSN for my reference.

Sorry for my terrible english! Hope u enjoy my review!

Updated news!

After several days observation; I found my 113 white dial lost around 4~5mins a day. Just 2 hours ago; I went to my faithful watchsmith who serviced all my rep before. He use a machine to test the calibation; I wonder it show -233sec/day........

My watchsmith spend 5 mins to regulate my 113 to +/-0~2 sec/day. Seems my last question had been answered; My 113 are not cablirated before it ship. Anyway, it fine for me just spend usd$3.8(HK$30.-) to regulate my watch. But maybe we should pay attention to this point when we purchase from dealer's.

Cheers,

Raymond

I think you are correct. I purchased last week a 111H from same dealer. And I lose about 5 minutes a day.

So I think the same, it's not calibrated, or even not serviced before shipping.

Do other readers have the same problem ?
