This is around the time I picked up my two 6538’s, 6536-1 and proto Comex.  The Comex was the most by far at £5900, I think.  It was from a really amazing antiques shop just off Bond St that was a favourite haunt of mine.  It was there for years and had some amazing pieces at half the price of Royal Arcade and the usual suspects in the area like Duggans and Burlington’s dealers.

Instead of bragging around how much you BOUGHT the watches for, why don't you sell us, how much you've SOLD that Milsub for - so that everybody can see what a dumbass you really are?

I haven’t sold my milsub you dumbass, but I’m contemplating it. I sold the 6536 out of that lot.

As if selling the 6536 for less than 10k was any smarter  ajb007/biggrin

You can say that now.  But back then that was a high price for one. And four times what I paid  ajb007/biggrin

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

Totally random thought, but do you think it would ever be possible that a manufacturer could someday make a replica or continuation of the G757 from Octopussy? That watch is a real bit of fun and possibly even the Bond one with the most screentime in terms of closeups(! Maybe that or the LALD Rolex?), and with the Casio AE1200-WH being so popular as a bit of a homage you'd think it would sell well. It would be a great signature piece for the 007 store you'd think!
I know Seiko Wired made a kind of homage to link with Metal Gear Solid, but it wasn't anything like it really.

Is there a decent milanese band that is very similar to the omega (in terms of weave and general style) from a third party?

I'm surprised no one has answered your post. I'm not an expert, but I found the below link that seems informative:

I really like those straps - especially the slightly larger mesh ‘Shark Mesh’ versions - your one looks great AA  ajb007/martini

Wonder how they’re going to go with the “vintage” NTTD Seamaster with the new, fairly intricate mesh bracelet? Might be tricky to get as close to the gen as that Seamaster in the video with the NTTD.

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

Wonderful stuff! I love them.

I do think they should do a continuation of those: the Casio that nods towards it is so popular. Obviously a continuation different enough from the original as not to upset those who have one of course! Stick some 007 branding on if they want: I actually wouldn’t mind ajb007/smile
Is it a big watch?

Did you buy it recently?

Re: Watch Porn Wednesday

So are the new Bond swatches worth getting? Are the previous ones collectible/worth anything now?

Omega have a nice little exhibition of their screen-used Bond watches on show in Zurich airport to celebrate the NTTD watch, which is fun.

Good investment!
Do you have other SA Seikos?
