Rolex: Nicolas is correct regarding the time frame,

However, for a gold Daytona, the value is in the condition of its case. You can always find a tritium dial, but you cannot unpolish a case. Only the early porcelain or inverted 6 dials have a superior value on their own.

Patek Philippe: In the past, PP used to rhodinate its wg cases.

Rhodinated wg is just as bright as platinum. However, the rhodium plating may wear of, like gold plaque. I am not sure, though, when they stopped rhodium plating. I thought it was long before the 5205. Personally, I prefer pure white gold because of its warm shine.

Officine Panerai: My favorite!

The Pre-A dial is so clean, so reduced to those iconic early fat numbers. This really may be my favorite sapphire PAM! My 002A salutes your beauty!

Rolex: What a wonderful and rare watch!

But you are right, the hands should be dauphin. A pity because the hands are unobtainable. But still: fantastic dial and very elegant case!

Officine Panerai: What a wonderful watch!

The Pre-Vendome (and the Pre-A) Panerai are incredibly charming. I really love those dials with strong patina on the big numbers! Thanks for posting it!

Officine Panerai: Thanks Brandon! Being more into vintage Rolex, Panerai is a "fun watch" for me. Seeing that Panerai did not offer exactly what I want, I decided to help myself.

I have no intention whatsoever to pretend anything improper. This is my kit watch. Except for a dial and a caseback it is genuine Panerai. Everything can be brought back to stock. No animals or children were harmed. And I have a hell of a time with it! Cheers!
