Hi! Was wondering what you guys think of this 810? I know I see far fewer of this dial variant 810 than the pandas etc. Are they less collectible and should be priced lower?

Thanks in advance for your time!

in the contrary, I think.

the Ice Queen is one of the nicest variations.

Matter of opinion I think. Both versions are beautiful but I'd value the silver lower than a reverse panda, and I apply the same approach to the V188 based Top Times too.

Finding them in good condition is sometimes hard as the dial surface will show defects more readily than a black dial.

Thank you guys

How do you think the condition is of the one I linked to? I will ask for better pictures of the dial. I’m assuming the discoloration is a reflection. Does the case look ok?

Think it looks really nice. Lume pips are all there an not damaged, dial looks clean, lugs edges are as you expect (they are ever so rounded and not super sharp on this case) The only thing I think I might see is the lower pusher cap looks ever so slighly the wrong size and might have been replaced, but might just be the photography. 99.9% of the world wouldn't care.

Well I got the 810, at a big discount as well since he had been sitting on it for a while. I love it! I’m happy to have the variety in my top time collection. I had been worried that it would be too similar to my panda but it’s totally different. This can now double as my “dress” watch as it’s the closet thing I have to one. Very silver dial as opposed to the slight champagne patina in my panda. And of course the case differences.

Question : Does it seem like the hands may be relumed? They seem pretty white.. but really at the end of the day I don’t care! On the wrist it looks great.

Sellers pics didn’t do this piece justice. Thanks again.

Nice. Do the hands glow more strongly than the dial pips?

Yeah. I checked tonight and the hands faintly glow and the dial doesn’t seem to glow at all.

Probably original then. Hands and dials were made by different suppliers so don’t normally match perfectly in glow intensity. If the hands aren’t glowing strongly, they probably haven’t been relumed.
