    +1.....I owned a post 2006 Datejust for a while and it wore bigger than the 36mm Explorer 1 which I also owned.

    My strong advice is to try the various models on the wrist and keep an open mind,...

    Using water in the bath, with the item to be cleaned immersed in the cleaning medium, makes far more sense......and yes, it will work with the small baths that are available cheaply.

    The screw’s made of stainless steel, so the alum trick won’t work.

    As I stated earlier, penetrating oil, ultrasonic plus lots of heat in the right place will move it.......eventually. A...

    Out of the current range, my choice would be the Oyster 36, or 39 if you prefer a bit more size. Both are just the wrong side of £4k.....but not by much. Shouldnít be too difficult to get hold of too.

    Overall, considering the age of the watch, I think the condition is good, but I’d need to inspect the dial very carefully before deciding whether it’s one I would be happy to own.

    It's a really nice watch ....in the right light! In some light conditions it's not easy to read, the dial's a bit 'busy' and the hands could do with being a bit fatter. It's an elegant watch, dating...

    Yes, itís one of my favourite watches thesedays. I wear it on a generic deployant with a nice padded alligator- style strap, suits the watch perfectly IMO.

    Thanks Kirk, I really enjoyed the evening.....even though you dissed my Zenith on the spurious basis of the wonky date window!

    I`ll advise on this but I`m not volunteering to sort it out. I`ve downed tools for a few months.

    Interesting to note it doesn`t say 'automatic' on the dial, which suggests it's hand-wound. That...

    Think about it for a moment.

    Heat needs to be applied at the threaded end of the link where the screw threads engage, on a Jubilee that's the opposite end to the head, and it'll be a fairly fine...

    Time for me to quit this forum, if not permanantly at least for a good while.

    I really couldn't get worried about this. It could be argued that the outer white sleeve has performed its intended duty and protected the green inner box.

    For a watch to stop at bang on 12, with the seconds hand on 12 too, is a huge coincidence, and Iím never happy with accepting coincidence as an explanation for anything. Yes, it can happen, but...

    Agree 100%, thatís why you needto get your arse moving and try one on. If you like it buy it, if you donít you donít buy it. You cannot evaluate watches from behind a screen.
