My dad had a Rolex stolen. Does Rolex have a system in place to help recover stolen watches? I think I have the serial number.

Hmmm, I thought so; however I can't find anything about this on the Rolex site.

Can this be possible...I guess so

I bought a watch in Vegas about ten years ago fo4r like 200 clams. It is a Chronograph that is made by Sector. Has some sort of Eta movement in it. Anyway, I set it to GMT about a year ago after a battery change, and this morning, I checked it and it is about four seconds different.

I'm waiting for one of these to show up. I'll likely put it on a NATO band.

Citizen Drive Version of an Eco-Drive

Simple, yet plenty of eyecatching details
Mesh style face, yes those are all little circular holes. Simple hour markers with red markings, Old school hour/ minute/ second hands, and the second hand has a red tip. The crown is reverse engraved with a "D" (Drive Series). The leather band is soft and comfortable, it does have a unique way of attaching to the full polished case. The buckle also has the "Citizen" engraving. The watch crystal is the super hard mineral, with a flat profile. The bezel is under the crystal with simple numberal markings. The date window is expanded, and I do like the red box the actual date is shown in. Its a nice dress / sport watch.


Side


back with screw down back plate


on the wrist, measures a solid 42 to the top of the crown.


Lume shot


retails for $225 US, but found for $165.00 US at www.princetonwatches.com Nice citizen.
