: Hi Guys,
: Don't forget today is " W hat
: the H eck ?, E bay
: W ednesday". We can come up with
: a better acronym than that !
: I will be posting an interesting auction
: later today ( I am currently at a Customers
: & can't access eBay .
: Anyone can do this, just post a link &
: tell us what you find interesting about the
: auction. ( Sorry, but self promoting links
: will have to be removed )
: S. How about WHOOPS: eBay ?

: Here is my "WHOOPS: eBay post for today...
: Omega Speedmaster Mark III, 70er
: Jahre, Neuzustand!:
: My main concern is
: that while I've seen so many "Cushion
: Cased Mark III's" to think that Omega
: probably made them this way, I've never
: before seen a Cushion Cased Mark III with
: the black dial that's ordinarily seen in
: the "Volcano" cased version of the
: Mark III This appears to be a genuine
: Mark III dial. This caseback is very
: interesting... It appears that a Case
: Reference number has been hastily crossed
: out and a new one added with the assistance
: of a drafting style engraving machine... Of
: you look at the "6" under high
: magnification one can easily see that the
: lower part of the "6" where it
: loops around and up to meet the left portion
: of the numeral overlaps the horizonal
: Looking at the crossed out Case Reference
: number I can discern that the number crossed
: out was either 176.001 or 176.007. Since it
: would make no sense to cross out 176.007 and
: then re-engrave it, it would seem most
: likely that the number is 176.001. The finny
: thing about the 176.001 is that I've never
: seen one of them ever anywhere in my
: travels. I don't know if this model is a
: "re-tasked prototype, or a put-together
: cobbled together with scavenged parts, or
: absolutely original [although I seriously
: tend to doubt the latter] but I think it
: qualifies for our WHEW or WHOOPS posts.
: The seller has a 100% feedback, so it may be on
: the up and up. But I won't be bidding on it.
: Let's be careful out there!
