Saw this on Paul Thorpe’s channel. Crazy.

Love how everyone just carries on as normal after

Very strange - lot of psychological factors in play there… listening to Paul’s analysis is very interesting… think he’s bang on with most of it.

Got confirmation from the seller that the minute/hour hands are said to be original but look slightly off colour.
Anyone have experience of this or could comment?

did think of that but seller said it hasn't been serviced for the last 14 years, in order to keep original parts. It is a Swiss-T <25 dial, which fits in with when it is said to have been produced, 1992.

If you're not sure, buy it under the condition that you first have it checked at a specialised shop. If it hasn't been serviced for 14 years it might be damaged as well.

Just had the bracelet code from him and he’s stated 93250, this is a submariner bracelet?
Original should be 78360 looking online and from chatting to easypz.
I’m asking for more information from him, but seems like not original

could be that the hands look much darker on the picture as in rl so if you have the chance to check in under daylight DO IT.
remember guys the term "matching hands" came up a few years ago. dial produced at factory a and hands came from supplier - so in 5 out of 10 cases there a no matching hands but still factory condition

also it should be mounted a 78360 with the the small clasp.

Done some googling and found that the 93150 was a possible option, however the 93250 is more modern with SEL.
Original asking price is 9k with box and papers, says he’ll take 8.3k.
Does this seem a good deal or worth trying to negotiate more with him

93150 was an option in 94/95 I think, should still be a 78360 as yours is a 93?
Clasp code will help verify

It’s a 1992, so should be a 78360 based on this.
Edit: seller confirmed it’s a 93150

Does anyone know anywhere other than Ebay that sells decent Rolex 78350 bracelets? Or are there any good aftermarket bracelets to be had? It's for an Oysterdate precision.

Anyone got a view on living with a Tudor Pepsi? Got the opportunity to pick a gently used one up in Oman for almost a grand off retail and am torn.

Yeah but you’ll always be living in the shadow of a Pepsi GMT Master II I think.
