    Yep I concur with the above, that is a Chronographe Suisse with either a replacement or repainted dial or maybe just one that was sold out of a Tiffany store originally. The cases while 18K are wafer...

    They still do if Wiki is to be believed. 23rd SAS (R) hq is in Kingstanding hence the earlier comments about there. 21st SAS (R) hq is next to Regent's Park.

    There is a TA SF recon component I believe (21st and 23rd SAS?) so the 2 things he says are not mutually exclusive but then he is probably full of crap since I would imagine anyone who has served in...

    Yes exactly that. There is at least one set of strap spring bars in the changing tool handle, possibly two. I have a RM trilogy but I can't be bothered to run upstairs to check!

    Some Omegas too. Bracelet bars have shorter bodies for the reasons you state above, the need fit when you compress both ends at once. The Trilogy pieces which came with both bracelet, leather straps...

    Yes that might make sense. ~Being 10.8mm, maybe the sabot is chambered for .50 cal or maybe even 20mm. Is there anything in between in use? As you say the projectile has a boat tail but an unusual...

    Maybe you joke but it did cross my mind so I borrowed the use of an XRF gun to check. The .50 cal core shows through at the base and on one side where the jacket has split, its iron/steel. All the...

    On for the ex forces amongst us, or others with knowledge of firearms perhaps. I picked up these 2 items a few years ago during a tramp across the top of a range used by UK Armoured Regiments. The...

    As you say, not a great deal. Would likely have been £450 all in at Omega inc those parts. Or around £400 at STS.

    When was it serviced last? If not recently then it is likely false economy to not get it done, many repairers might insist anyhow. Unfortunately the cheap options for servicing Omega chronographs are...

    Not a lot I would think, original 321s are already toppy. There is a good chance though that they’ll release a 105.012 Pro reissue with the 321 at some point which might generate a fillip of interest.

    It wont fit. See my comment above about the ridge, there is a similar issue with the 50th anni bracelet in that it wont fit older Pro watches very well for the same reason. You are a bit SOL with the...

    Thanks! Mine is a -65, murkey above shows a -64. As you say they have subtly different lugs, the -64 are like a compound curve on the side with no flat, the -65 have a bevel/mitred flat. See below...

    It does seem like they pulled the same trick again here as they did on the Buzz Butt and have fitted a ridge to the new bracelet to prevent it being retro fitted to existing models. There is no easy...

    No not me. Interesting threads and it is news to me the crystal coat changed. No offence but I don't see anything definitive there, just opinions and one or 2 of the shots showing the later...

    And how exactly do you contact the previous owner? The dealer won’t now by law pass that on and in fact many destroy any documentation such as service history that identifies previous owners.

    Since it is a Pro model with an extract production date of 1968 then it is a 145.012-67 or 145.012-68, the change over between which was late October 1968, the only difference is the 2 digit...
