    I know, it's weird. I feel a bit like a spoilt child about it too. The day it arrived (glorious warm day), I tried it on, appreciated its beauty, but then put on the Deepsea to go swimming in the sea with the dog. When in the water, the sun shining on the glorious blue of the Deepsea made me fall in love with it again

    I still do like the Panerais, thought I'd try a Radiomir this time. It's classy and stylish. And I suppose I am not :-(

    Maybe try a simple base logo luminor ? Slab sides with the crown guard . Closest new model available that’s similar to the original pre v watches.44mm wears a lot nicer as well.



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators, Regional East Moderators Posts: 58,108 CMod ✭✭✭✭ unkel


    Yep my thinking too. I had a Luminor before but it was a chrono, no sandwich dial and too busy. But the fit and look to me of the overal model was perfect.


    I did try on a few submersibles and others from the "pamily" of the guy who sold me the Explorer II and I was quite taken with them too (and I did have zero interest in them before)

    That Pam111 on adverts would be perfect. Seller seems a bit off though , the watch could have been sold a few times by now but still no deal done

    Hi. Was looking for bit of advice . Saw this on donedeal quartz omega seamaster 300. No box or papers and price is representative of that at €1900. It's been on adverts.ie and withdrawn a few times too due to not getting price which was previously higher.

    My concern is the bracelet looks very worn and never serviced since purchase 14 years ago.

    If I got it for right price and factoring in 400 quote from ichrono to service and polish but I'm wondering would bracelet clean up or is it indicative of more damage to watch for length of time without service ?

    That's fairly well worn see the pic of the case side, plus the strap on it is about 2mm too small at the lugs, I'd be cautious on that one. Even though the price is way off on the low side.



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,976 ✭✭✭ scwazrh


    i don’t think the strap is original but reckon the watch is although it is well worn.

    I placed an offer when it first listed but on the basis of too cheap to be true I gave up on it .The seller is odd though , doesn’t seem to be actively pushing for a sale which brings in the “ buy the seller “ doubt .



  • Registered Users Posts: 32 Rightplace2016


    Seller claims he got it new and never wore it yet can't explain why bracelet is so worn.

    "Buy the seller" and I don't . Think I'll pass.Thank for advice

    Donedeal in general is not a great place for watches. Totally un moderated and more fakes than real watches. The price is not all that tempting either around market on a quartz.

    Offered the Panerai back to Watchfinder. This will take a long time, so put it on adverts too:

    Nothing wrong with the seamaster at all, a decent clean and polish will have that looking amazing, I’ve picked up worse over the years and once you factor in the service it’s not an issue



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,970 ✭✭✭ 893bet


    Yeah I think it’s fine also.

    Looking at it I suspect it’s a midsize (2561.80.00) so price was nothing special. Or perhaps the red text on the dial means it’s full size? I used to be up on Omega refs.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,660 ✭✭✭ david


    Looks ok - bezel insert has been replaced and not aligned correctly though. Doesn't line up with the bezel indentations. Easy fix but that would annoy me.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,794 ✭✭✭✭ OmegaGene


    The seamaster is full size and for €1350 tbe buyer can’t go wrong

    Looking to move on my Damasko DA34. It is from 2018 and I am the second owner. I cannot see any marks on it, this is my second Damasko and they do not mark. Crystal is clean with not marks. Strap and pin buckle are Damasko. Strap is leather and lots of life left in it. I have a rubber Damasko with Damasko pin buckle which I will also include.

    I have box and papers (including receipt).

    This has the Damasko hardened case that is proprietary to Damasko. There is some other Damasko tech such as the use of Viton seals in the crown.

    A robust bit of kit in an everyday wearable watch.

    I am looking for €700.

    Only interested in a face to face. Based on the Northside of Dublin. Willing to travel a reasonable distance for meeting-up, COVID permitting!

    Any questions please PM me.

    Thanks

    Is this the same Sea Master? Looks like iChrono bought it.



  • Registered Users Posts: 16,794 ✭✭✭✭ OmegaGene


    it’s not the same as the one on adverts, that one had red writing

    who ever bought the one on adverts got a decent watch for good money



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,976 ✭✭✭ scwazrh


    does the red writing signify anything ?

    omega gave the seamaster a bit of a facelift and that was part of it, some people prefer it and the price tends to be higher

    Hi folks,

    Listing my Seiko Sla043 62mas limited edition on adverts

    Discount for any boardsie


    Cheers,

    Mick



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,976 ✭✭✭ scwazrh


    That’s a lovely watch .I’ve never owned a Seiko of that value .Is it far superior to say a samurai or king turtle ?At roughly 7 times more expensive than a king turtle I would hope there is a noticeable difference.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,446 ✭✭✭ micks_address


    Yeah to be fair it is lovely. Others have said it blows away the likes of the Tudors in terms of finishing. Its niche though as most people wouldn't expect a Seiko to cost so much. I've owned seikos at 300, 600, 1k and the quality is there with this. Accurate to one second a day as well



  • Moderators, Category Moderators, Motoring & Transport Moderators, Regional East Moderators Posts: 58,108 CMod ✭✭✭✭ unkel


    That's going to be a very hard sell over here Mick. You putting it up on TZ too? Might have better chances there.

    Already 2 up there unkel :) I don't mind if it doesn't sell. I suppose testing the waters



  • Moderators, Science, Health & Environment Moderators, Society & Culture Moderators Posts: 58,745 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Wibbs


    I've a client who has that very watch. His and yours must be among the only examples in Ireland. I was surprised to see it TBH as the chap wouldn't be a watch nutter by any means. In the metal it's a bloody impressive watch. Serious quality.

    Rejoice in the awareness of feeling stupid, for that’s how you end up learning new things. If you’re not aware you’re stupid, you probably are.



  • Registered Users Posts: 6,446 ✭✭✭ micks_address


    It sure is. The everbrilliant steel really shines on the case. Its put together in the Grand Seiko studio i think. What drew me to it was the lack of Prospex or X on the dial. Its very clean. The movement has a pretty loose spec but this one is running to 1 second a day. I wish they had made a bracelet for it in the same steel. There's one from the sla017 but its diashield coated so not a colour match
