    Ok I'll play. Went on safari in the wild streets jungles of Louisville pawn empires and flea markets and came up with these this weekend. a Pulsar 7T62 compass type of watch but I have his big brother too a Seiko 7T62air master then on to this a nice Citizen diver and lastly today I picked this up all under 260 for everything. I've never heard about this watch but it was a package deal with the Citizen and Pulsar it's a Cole Haan I think it's a restr pilot dive watch but it's pretty and understated it's nice enough for the money. all three for 100 not a bad spot of buying at all. Cheers all.

    Ok. Not too bad a weekend. Garage and estate sales. 4 watches. Total cost $27. The chronograph is quartz and about only 15-20 years old. Anyone heard of this Chase Durer company. Pretty cool watches. Got these awesome medallions on the back. Couldn't resist. Since I got this I saw 2 exact same watches sell for 250 on the bay.

    Well I've found another today at the same said wilderness. Please tell me it's real lol.

    And the dial is immaculate there is a scratch on the crystal that my poly watch is going to take care of.

    Strange, I did a search of OMEGA database (even used wild-card)
    No reference 196 0266
    OMEGA Watches: Vintage Watches Database

    but I did find the exact same case serial number sold on ebay a while back??

    So is it a fake? I just got it form our local Sunday watch club meeting I can take it back as everyone there is a stand up person. And did just the case sell on eBay?? Did someone case omega movement as that at least s real it seems just old. And the dial looks genuine why would someone Franken a Quartz vintage lol makes no since to me but ah well. By the way that serial is off the case back and this case is about as dirty as you could get so I really want to know if it's real.

    Btw here are my last buys of the long weekend unless I score the Longines I'm hoping to score one is a Waltham diver and a Avia Swiss star.

    I'm not sure it's fake at all but it's strange the movement is so worn. It is a correct movement though.

    Here is an old City chronograph I picked up for $75 but I should have stayed away from it...

    I took a chance as it doesn't look to bad and is only missing a pusher and a small hand.

    A Valjoux 7734 and it doesn't look to bad on the surface and the base movement is working just fine. However the problem is in the added bits and some of them are really worn so they must be replaced and it will cost several times the amount I bought it for.

    So it is a find but just not for me.

    I like it, if you don't want it, I'd help take it off your hands!
