DC what do you think about this and how is it comparing to the 530?

That's been on Silix site for years, don't think it's available anymore, I think I tried to order it once a few years back! But yes it's essentially a 530 with a different dial configuration from the looks of it!

Well my 5070r is sold and I've dropped Watch Finder an email to order one of these, so keeps your eyes peeled for a DC review when it lands!!!

Nice one, which configuration did you go for? SS with off-white dial?

I was going to go for the off white dial but after looking at the videos and checking a few reference pictures I decided the silvery white dial was a better match for gen, and also in the real world a lot more wearable too!!

 

Not ruling out the possibility of picking up a rose or yellow gold one too but I'm thinking my collection is destined to be all in steel, as none of my gold watches get the attention they deserve!!

oh man, what a watch!!!

 

DC I think you are right, i think you could ''bake'' the dial in the oven juuuust a little bit to get it to brown up slightly.

Then if you put it in a jar of coins and repolished it a couple times...it would be really nice.

 

Finally I would figure out how to add a solid back.

DC, congrats.

Why did you go with white rather than the light yellow version?

 

I am ordering one but after reading your comment I'm confused with white or light yellow.

 

I went with the White (which is actually slightly silvery) because of this...

And this...

And this...

And especially because of this...

The colour of the rep white dial in my QC pics is virtually indistinguishable from that last gen pic, and although some of them have aged and have a very slight yellow patina I found none which were as yellow as the light yellow dial rep. Plus a silvery dial will go better with my 5970 and 5107 both of which have silver dials :thumbsup:
