Wealth of knowledge in this post. Learning a ton on vintage watches. Looking to pick up a couple very soon and this is beyond helpful.

Icon7 Vintage Rolex Oyster Precision 6426?

$_57.jpg
Hi, I have an old Rolex Oyster Precision with a design code of what looks like 6426, without removal of the leather strap. It is a ladies model, with serial number between the lugs starting with 166. This dates it to a 1960's model to me, later than the one I have, well, to my inexperienced eyes anyway. Could your post about the way parts are sometimes used in different models possibly explain it?
Thanks for your valued opinion

I just acquired a gold 6265/7 with a non Rolex gold bracelet. Did they come with a leather band and if so where can I buy one (Rolex)
Thanks for all the great information.

Inherited a 1960 Sub from Cuba. Sweep/ hand dial. Working. All papers, no box. Don't know if it's a J. riviera or not. Taking it to be appraised today. I think the history of a watch out of 1960 Cuba has to merit some rarity/ worth. Any ideas?

Air King 5500

I have just purchased a vintage Air King 5500 serial no 987***. Can any one tell me when the 5500 model came into production as there is discrepancy as to the dating of the watch. i have been informed this could either be 1954 or 1963. i would appreciate any information. it has a 1530 movement and i am concerned it might be cobbled together

I recently bought something on a Web site, the service is also good.I've been getting a lot of questions lately about my www.csgo4skin.com inventory so I'm throwing this post together. See, I have an inventory valued at roughly $846.77. People often ask how much I spent for my skins. The answer is nothing. I've never spent money on CS:GO other than for the game itself. Everything I have, I got through playing the market and betting on pro matches. Now, I'm going to tell you the exact methods I used to get my inventory. By the end of this post, you'll know everything you need to start making a profit in CSGO.

I am planning to start buying vintage watches but there are some questions from the expert here
1. Vintage? As long as not in production can you call them vintage?
2. Which type you recommend for beginner? Submariner or GMT?

Thx you very much and much appreciated
