it's a 5107 in WG. it was discontinued and replaced by the 5127 which was replaced by the 5296.

here's a picture of the back..

the daytona is about to go in for service so hopefully it'll get polished up nicely..

i've got a breguet, panerai and t-touch as well, i'll post pics if anyone is interested..
please do. i'm always interested in seeing someone else's collection.

I recently posted a pic of this same watch (red with rubber). It's an excellent watch. Wearing it right now, I love it!

Re: Let's Talk Watches

I like it but in general I like rubber/leather better than metal because I think it fits better and is more comfortable.

Wow those are good deals. Do they always have those prices or are they limited time sales? Can anyone vouch for this website being legit?

Re: Let's Talk Watches

I've just acquired this Cartier watch and was wondering what the best way to go about selling it is / how much I should ask. I have the original cases and the books/paper work it came with.
Watch is in mint condition, was a gift to a man who's wife bought it but he didn't like it so he never wore it.



(Amazon page here)

Thanks guys
