Well since the original post disappeared I will start a new one about the watch I just purchased from ericf4. I was lucky enough to score the watch that I have wanted for a long time. I just wanted to thank Eric for allowing me the opportunity to purchase this beautiful timepiece from him. I will post Eric's photos with his permission from our conversation earlier because I have not yet received the watch. IMHO this is a coveted timepiece by any serious watch collectors. I have talked with several jewelers about the Accutron VX-200 Chronograph with the ETA Valjoux 7750 and all of them have told me what a fine timepiece it is. Here are Eric's photos from his earlier post. Please enjoy this beautiful timepiece.

Thanks James. I'm sure I don't have to tell you how excited I am. I will now officially be in the NBZ for a long time, but it is well worth it when you score the watch that you have been seeking for a long time. :b

I'm really glad you got the watch! I'm wearing his "little brother" as I type this (my long-ballyhooed 2824 version, LOL)

I hope you absolutely LOVE it! Congrats on the Accutron you REALLY wanted and your first 7750.

Wear it in good health!

Thanks David. The 2824-2 is also a very beautiful timepiece. Your right though I have wanted a 7750 for quite a while. Even better I wanted it in this exact watch.

I feel like a kid again waiting to open up a Christmas present come Christmas morning. I know a little over the top, but it's the truth.

You know the thought occured to me that in the title of the thread it was listed as a Pepsi bezel and actually it's a COKE bezel. The coke bezel is black and red and the Pepsi bezel is blue and red. Just a thought. Sorry for being anal on things!

To be honest with you I can't afford it either. I used what was left in my savings account to pick it up. I'm going to tell my kids that Santa died in sleigh crash somewhere in the North Pole. Ha Ha LOL!! No J/K. I actually got all my bills paid first and set aside all the Christmas money and then made the purchase. I won't be purchasing another watch for quite some time.

The way I look at it is like this. You can buy 6-7 watches that kind of tickle your fancy or you can spend the money on one that you have wanted for a long time. I actually wasn't going to pull the trigger when I first talked with Eric about it, but then it just sat in my head for 3 days. It was funny because I sent him a PM on friday telling him that I wanted it and unbeknownst (SP?) to me he had just barely put it up for sale on this forum and several others. Eric was already in negotiations with several others about it, but being the classy guy that he is he allowed me to buy it from him b/c I had expressed an interest in it first.

I know Eric is probably sick ofme publicly telling people what a good guy he is, but I can say this. If you want to purchase a watch from a stand up guy. He's the man. I will put in a plug for him on this forum b/c he deserves it. He has other watches for sale on this forum. Eric has a reputation of buying nice watches and taking good care of them. We spoke on the phone prior to me purchasing the watch and I could tell right off the bat that he is good guy. I have bought watches from other people and you could tell they were just using their salesman charm, but I didn't get this impression at all from him. Anyhow I'm totally stoked to receive this watch and thanks for looking at it.
