    Trip to Lisbon as suggested is your best bet - few hours by train or rental. Faro and surrounding parts don't stock Tudor/Rolex - although I am not too sure about Albufeira et cetera - I always tend...

    I must admit I am not too big a fan of these.. It makes the total package rather bulky, while I prefer the slimmer look of regular NATO's - including Omega's own offerings. As I work for an Omega AD...

    Re: Jankoxxx - the 'Nuke'm' Breitling on NATO

    thank you & the others. The Navitimer Airborne was in the B'ling collection from 1995 up to 1997. It uses the 38mm case like the Montbrillant. Please excuse my late reply

    Re: The verdict on Ebel watches

    I had one in my collection a few years ago, a 1911 Big Date in SS with bracelet. Superb quality with some unusual details like the vertical brushing of the case. The bracelet was very solid. Poor...
  8. Re: Difference between Rolex Oyster Date and Datejust please?

    then again, when introduced around '45 the DJ was quite a bulky & big watch. The same goes for the DD in the 50's/ 60's.. at the time those were rather large & thick in comparison to others.
  9. Re: Difference between Rolex Oyster Date and Datejust please?

    Maybe this was the case when the Datejust was first introduced? It is not the case now.[/quote]

    The first Datejusts weren't quickset, the quickset was introduced on the 16000-series Datejust and...
  10. Re: Difference between Rolex Oyster Date and Datejust please?

    Oyster Date is manual wind 34mm
    Oyster Perpetual Date is automatic 34mm
    Oyster Perpetual Datejust is automatic 36mm

    I've tried for quite some time to find out the difference but it's still not...

    Re: Explorer strap

    I'd go with something like this;

    It suits the tool style of the 1016 design rather well I think.

    good luck on your...

    awesome watch sir, nice catch. I'd love to add one to the stable one day.
  13. Re: Not BS: How difficult is it to quartzify a Rolex (Ex II)

    Wow, this sounds like a crazy project. I like it :lol: :lol: :lol:

    I'd go for a 3 hander RLX and try to swap the mvt for an OysterQuartz.. a very nice and high quality movement. It's a little...

    Re: 'Best' non ETA/Valjoux movement watch?

    what's best? Bullitproof? Go Rolex. You'll be done with 1250-1500€ for a nice Datejust, 34mm's will be even cheaper.

    The El Primero is a very nice movement and can be had for reasonable prices,...

    Re: help! i think i'm daydate bi-curious!

    it would be about time.. A vintage Day-Date is a joy to behold but undervalued at the moment when compared to sports models. Plus the variety in materials, dials, bracelets and bezels is immense so...

    Re: Rolex Datejust - buying advice?

    that would be the way to go indeed. They're not exactly rare so why take chances on eBay if you're not sure?

    Re: help! i think i'm daydate bi-curious!

    go for it!! I'd look for a nice plexi in the 1800-seris like the one posted above.. both the dial and the 'glass' are much more charming.

  19. Re: when all is said and done.....is Rolex the true Daddy????

    Co-Axial is supposed to lengthen the invervals in between services, but most Rolex keep ticking for 10-20 years without service and have been doing so for decades.
    I believe the 'Superlative'...

  23. Re: Vintage Breitling Chronomatic - Advice / Valuation needed

    ok, few things;

    it's IMHO a stellar watch but not a style that is very much sought after (yet). The Chrono-Matic is a collectible calibre to some, but most prefer it in the Monaco, Navitimer or...
