Re: Rolex Prince Ref : 912, 1934

Thanks for that mate :thumbup: Looks the right font going by that photo but some differences alright. Could the dial shift slightly if dropped or something ? I think i have seen that on some vintage watches maybe?? Having looked at it a few times it may well be an illusion brought on by the angle o...

I beleive it should look like this: https://i.imgur.com/kSaFqCi.jpg The auction estimate for the above was 7000 - 9000 CHF. It was made in 1930. Maybe th...

Re: Rolex Prince Ref : 912, 1934

To get it running an independent could perhaps do a total service for around £130. To me it looks a bit suspicious, im not outright saying it is but that dial is a bit off. For example how the 1, 2 and 3 hug the right side of the case but the 8, 9 and 10 do not and rather hug the minute track instea...

Nice watch, good to see a different colour to the Alpinist.
Do Hodinkee Seiko's come with a model number and tags, or is it just the Seiko US LE Hodinkee Alpinist?
Oh yeah, its got very own seiko model number and tags.

Cheers IAJ, likely be on ebay soon.

Re: Tudor North Flag

As some cant see what others see in the Speedy, i cant really see what people see in the north flag. I want to see it, it has that adventure watch atmosphere going for it but i cant get over the design choices of this model. To be fair to it though i thought in Tudors earlier days id be a big of of ...

I can go with that to some extent, but, as a new, unused model, surely it...
