    Just purchased a Time Bomb Titanium/Carbon Serial # 4752. I am not sure if it has the metal vault or not. Got it for $349 shipped (Is this a decent deal?). Looks to be in good condition with very minimal signs of wear. Will post pictures when it arrives. I have needed a new watch for some time, so I am pretty excited.

    Not a bad price but more then likely the cap will have to be replaced. It runs about $15, if you have the right tools you can do it yourself, but a watch maker could do the work and pressure check it for $30

    That's not too bad. The guy said he wore it a couple days and put it away, and that it was still keeping good time after a week. Either way I don't mind replacing the cap if necessary.

    "'Thats what the guy said" Funny, thats what the seller of mine said too. I bought it in person. Absolutely perfect in every way. He wanted $400, I told him $340, because he didn't have the box and it was gonna need a cap replacement. He told me it keeps perfect time. Sure it does if left on the wrist for 24/7, oh and it had to be moving all the time..... Leave it motionless for an hour and I had my answer. After my cap was replaced, I wore it for 3 days, then put it in my case and it kept time for three weeks and still was working. It now goes in the Wolf watch winder and I wear it occasionally. Its worth doing a new cap and pressure test. I now have the metal vault, the outer box and the instruction book.

    Yea, I will probably end up getting that done. I see you have the "F" serial/forged clasp. Good looking watch.

    Sounds good. Ill post some pictures up when it arrives. I've got a few things coming to add to my collection. This week is going to be like Christmas for me.

    Edit - So the seller said the rubber parts came off prior to shipping. I had the choice of a full refund or getting the watch for $200. I ended up taking the watch anyways. So I'll just keep my eyes open for the rubber parts.

    Got the watch today. The band is a little more beaten up on one side than it originally appeared, but as I said I got the watch for $200. I plan to wear the watch while working so it does not need to be pristine.

I may try to use some rubber cement to repair them. Either way it is still comfortable for me to wear.
