    Dear C11 Forumers,

    Paul from the other side (OF...) - I don't post here often, but this time I am after a nice 1553. I like both variants, S and N - Please PM me with what you have :)

    I will favor those who are interested in trading theirs against a couple of things I have FS on OF at the moment, and will make sure the deal is worth it for those who go this direction:
    - Aquastar blue 63: https://omegaforums.net/threads/blue-aquastar-63-1701-drop-to-700usd.104319/
    - Omega 50th NiB bracelet: https://omegaforums.net/threads/new-in-bag-omega-apollo-11-50th-bracelet-els-020stz011626.111148/

    I have plenty of references on the other side to support a smooth deal :)

    Thank you in advance, and stay safe :)

    Paul

    Hi Paul, I don't have one for sale I'm afraid but for clarity, are you looking for a 1153 (calibre 11/12) or 1553 (calibre 15)?
    Thanks, Steve

    Great Paul! So 1553. :thumbsup:
    You should be able to edit the title by clicking 'MODERATE' in the top right, similarly to 'EDIT' (from memory) on OF....

    Thank you Steve - yes indeed, the moderate button did the "edit title" trick. Thank you for your help. :thumbsup:

    Will keep an eye out. Worth checking over on Chronotrader occasionally too.

    @Lonestar, Gerzner watch center listed a 1553 on IG, with GF BoR and matching HLC endlinks. Perhaps worth checking out. Case and bracelet probably refurbished, looks mint.

    Thank you for the tip @Yago :thumbsup:

    Nice end-result, the case edges do look a bit soft indeed, and the brushing, to my non-heuer-specialist, looks a bit too pristine to be authentic. It is still a nice-looking one though, I will pass for now but I'm keeping it in mind :)
