233 Dome Crystal - Ruud Van Egg-on-Face

Ok, let's get this over with. I have to confess that I got this one horribly, horribly wrong. I could've sworn the 233 I was admiring a couple of weeks back had a normal crystal. My guy at OP has just confirmed the 233 still has the domed crystal.

I'm now off to go find a huge towel to wipe the egg off my face.

My apologies guys.

See attached pics of an S Serial 233 (I've edited out the number), which my man has just sent me.

Great news. This will probably be my next PAM, but need to save enough first.

Thanks! Although I was kind of hoping they got rid of the dome, since I already have one with it. :)

He would have been even more amazing if he had got it right first time


I have had sleepless nights and been in therapy since his announcement.

No, it's a simple case of Ruud Van D-head

Please send all your bills for therapy to me and I'll pass them to Ian to process for payment.

Well at least you bring good news. If not for the value of my 233, but it makes me happy.

Drink on me if we ever meet for standing-up here and in the other thread, and saying "my bad." No blood, no foul.
