    Sub 300t conquistador just arrived....... WOOOOOOOOHOOOOOO :)))))))))

    Hi All,


    Well the delivery guys have been busy with me today

    I recieved a Doxa Nymph this morning that I had all but given up hope on as it has been lost for over a month in the postal system (pics will follow)

    I then got a call this afternoon from my Horologist and picked this little beauty up. I'm afraid this post is a bit quick and dirty as its sooo late over here but I was just bursting to share it with you all.

    There is quite a weee story behind this watch which I shall tell you all about later. Safe to say though it has taken a lot of goading and cajoling to get the previous owner to part with it. Enjoy












    Cheers

    Simon

    Ohhhh and a Doxa Sub Conquistador !!!!!!

    Can't Sleep so thought I would give a little more info,

    The case has no HRV valve so its not an original conquistador case but is the best case I have come accross so far, very crisp lines with little or no marks.

    The bezel again is probably the best I have seen but is incorrect for a conquistador as I think they all came with one in feet.

    The movement is a Doxa signed ETA2472 which is definately a genuine conquistador movement.

    The dial and hands as some of you may have noticed have been re-finished, I have photos of it before they were done and and they were in very very poor condition. I do think personally that it has come up very well and is almost as it was with just a few subtle differences.

    Cheers

    Simon

    Awwwwwww Jason !!!! You let the cat out of the bag, I was going to pretend I got it from........ LOL

    Yep you are right, David went the extra mile for me on this one. I really did'nt think he would let this one go but my need for conquistador in my collection and a huge increase in my overdraft convinced him otherwise

    BTW I would thouroughly recommend the "badgering technique" when trying to persaude one Doxa nut to part with one of his treasures....100 emails later and hey presto !!!
