Can anybody here show me the difference between preA OP6500 and 6502?

Especially the ones with PVD coating... I've been told the differences by many expert paneristis about the differences but pictures would be very helpful to spot the differences.. Many thanks in advance.. Best, Sam

And it takes me a lot of time before opening it, to have access to all my pics. Will try this WE, unless someone here can do it before. I definitely need to invest in a new lab top. Best, Nicolas.

PreA 4 and 4B-T PreA 9 Regards, BillS100...

I notice that the CG Pin on the preA4 is not PVD'd so I assumes it's a 6500 case.. 2 more questions.: Is the inner bezel part on the 6500 case is not PVD'd? Also I wanted to know if the distance between dial to crystal is the same as the one on PreVendome...

Those watches are tucked away in a safety deposit box with some other cousins.... Thankfully, at least I keep my jpegs with me on my home computer.. So when I get a chance, I can have a look for you. Cheers, Bill

My camera is giving me problems... But 6500 cases, like Pre-V cases, have very a very distinct and pronounced lug shape. Lugs are thick and somewhat crisp/sharp, with a flat foot bottom. 6502 lugs have a less distinct shape, with a more rounded and smooth...
