...but different, G series first year of production in 2004, 1500 pcs, "black seal" @ 6 o clock as opposed to "panerai" at 6 o clock for following batches and finally panerai engraved movement.

Hope this helps.

It's already home! All the numbers were matching (watch, stickers, COSC certificate, etc) plus I thoroughly checked all the other details that my friends taught me.

Big thanks to Raymond, ZZ & Yeu Huan for the knowledge they shared on which parts/details to check before pulling the trigger :D

Thanks to Phuman as well for his reply & for sharing pictures of his watch for comparison/reference.


On to the pics (sorry for the poor quality - just used my iPhone's cam under a warm light):









Will take some decent pictures with my 000 this weekend. Thanks for looking!

Bought this one new many years ago and had to let it go when the 232 came around -- but to me this is the watch that put the Radiomir back on the map. Big congrats!

If you're still on the hunt, I can give you the contact details of some sellers here in Singapore. I will also personally check the piece for you once you're already decided. Let me know, yeah? Cheers mate!
