Yep. He didn’t realise the impact of what he was doing. The charity angle was a cover-up. They hit major issues with the new place and name change etc so were trying to buy time but social media doesn’t have much patience when you’re holding clients money/watches.
I can’t see these two staying together much longer.
Marco has had enough of the antics.

Yes it’s quite an unusual looking Patek. Annual calendar, chronograph, power reserve… beauty.

Yeah. Newspapers downplaying the price. It's actually worth closer to £400k. Absolutely mad to post yourself wearing it live at Wembley on your insta then try and get home on your own.
Glad he wasn't hurt!

Excellent work mate. that is a steal. Was the sapphire crystal replaced? Anything else needed replacing or all serviceable? Did the bracelet service remove most of the stretch or was it mostly cosmetic?
A wrist shot would be nice to see how it sits now

Crystal was the only thing replaced, as well as gaskets, serviceable parts etc.
Refurb removed a whole lot of stretch, check out his instagram page, its on there.
36mm is too small for my wrist, hence the mrs will be wearing it. Will get a shot of it together at some point this week.

Looks decent that eazy, surprised how cheap it was to service and restore the bracelet also! Thanks for the links.

Probably been done to death, but can anyone recommend somewhere to get a brown leather strap for my speedmaster?

Hey man. i think thats normal. My lex's sleep after around the same time and never noticed it being different after service. It most likely depends on how vigorously you wore it. I would buy a watch winder and service it when it stops working completely. Rolex service circa 600 and 12 weeks. There was a local guy mentioned above with a much better rate if you want it serviced in the UK.
Lovely watch btw!

Your sea dweller is most likely a 16600, produced between late 80s and late 2000's. It has a power reserve of 50 hours, servicing wont improve that. But you should get it serviced at minimum every 10 years to keep the internals clean.
I personally would never service it only when it stops or breaks, that's not the point of a service.
