    Shabby-chic, with much emphasis on the "shabby" and none at all on the "chic", a 33mm Larex "Luxury" for today, seemingly having been run over a few times by something heavy.

    OK, it was always going to have a Langendorf movement but what did surprise me was to find a 30j version of their 1065 inside. 30 jewels in a hand-winder - "Luxury" indeed!

    Regards.

    Is this one for real or one of the AAA+ replicas 'Rolex Datejust Migliore Qualita?' Sorry about this, just interested as a friend has a similar one... No, I am not the friend myself, the image is from the website.

    According to what I know, and I might be wrong, Rolex never put the 6 upside down, at least for this model, which might have been done to have a distiction for legal purposes.

    I've bought pocket watches before but only to sell on ebay or to use for parts - see last posts - but this little babe, and I mean little (it is, I think what might be called a Grandmothers watch), was in an antique shop in Wells and I couldn't resist it....

    ...and why would you resist? It is 100 years old this year according to the comprehensive on-line record for Elgins. The movement has been worked to present that sort-of see-through effect. The case is so thickly covered in gold that it has only worn through in two tiny places. The size is smaller than the Omega I was wearing when I bought it. I love small watches and this is simply amazing and yet, because Elgin were so good at what they did, it is not worth a huge amount of money, but this is definitely a "keeper". It was running fast but reliably so; I thought the spring was magnetised so I tried de-magnetising but actually the hairspring (overcoil..jeez, just what I need!) was stuck together on the outer coils, so I gently coaxed the coils apart and it now runs at the more accustomed rate. I don't know if it will continue to do so but I think I will persevere.
    What I need now is a thinnish gold chain to go with it ....

    It was just a question. I had been at an horological event dealing with those problems and remember a friends plagiate (he has it for demonstration purposes only). So, we have seen the genuine version, much better this way.
