Looks like a paddle to me. Don't be caught in a creek without one.

Al, you didn't have to kill the watch. I would have taken it off your hands and given it a decent burial.

Hey this will work here too

My Dad's Omega.....



My Dad is in the UK but the watch is in Perth Aus waiting for his (my Dad) grandson (my Son) to grow up so he (my son, my Dad's grandson) can wear it with pride.

Well, judges, do we let it stay or do we move it somewhere else?

Not a Rolex, but keeping this thread going.

See this thread:

http://www.rolexforums.com/showthrea...529#post154529

As I noted, the bracelet has the dive extension, never offered on a YM... the dial also has more of a cream caste to it than the pure platinum colour. The minute markers also look suspect. The minute hand looks neither wide nor long enough and then there's the cyclops.

Sorry but this one looks like it came off one of those spam emails we all get.
