AT LAST!!!!!!! I have been eyeing the original reference for years!

Oct 21, 2020,13:20 PM

Found a great example of this beauty and jumped on it. I am grinning ear to ear! Just set the time and so excited. Not even setting the time to the standard 10:10 for the beauty picks. LOL... I dare say the only SS model with both a “9” and a framed date window!

By joining the party...👍 ...  

Assuming you are referring to the 5010-07 (Safari), there aren't many for sale

 By: India Whiskey Charlie : October 21st, 2020-14:30
Those that are available have very high asking prices.

Exactly... the 5010-07 is not really available

At a “reasonable price.” 😀... good for those who earned the allocation

Bravo, mon ami! Enjoy. [nt]

Oh yeah! Nothing beats the 5002! Pure and classic and especially with the vintage/military looming dial 👌🏼

The lume on these pieces has a completely different character to the well-lit dial...

and I love it. Anybody got a lume shot handy?

The lume “configuration” on the 5002 I believe is much different to the 5004...

Of course there are the 5010 safari and heritage have similar layout and there are the applied numerals in the 5009 Le Petit Prince and St. Antoine 5002, safari and heritage have all hour markers and triangles, but not numerals 5004 just has the triangle ...

What are your thoughts on the marks around the subdial?

 By: Brandon Skinner : October 29th, 2020-21:26
Right now this just looks like a dial with imperfections, but if the “problem” spreads evenly throughout you might have a watch that fetches 10x more in 20 years. What’s your feeling about about it?
