    finally the last good looking Sub got the new spring!
    Today I bought another SubnD and before paying the bill I needed some proof of having the new spring or not. :lol: So 50:50 chance! :thumbsup:

    I was really happy when the watchmaker opened it and the blue heart was smiling at me! What a nice little good looking watch with the blue parachrome :thumbsup:

    Thanks, Marcus! :thankyou:

    It looks GREAT! :thumbsup:

    Is that Sub 14060M still from the letter series, or does it have a random serial number? :thinking:

    Interesting news, Marcus. :thumbsup:

    I guess adding the parachrome hairspring to the entire line is inevitable.

    Please show us the dial, too.

    Parachrome bleu spring is another outstanding upgrade that can't be beat! Thanks for the pic. Marcus!

    thank you guys!
    Last year I got a no date gap dial, this year it´s a no gap and with a bigger writing on the dial.
    I like it much better! But will keep them both :lol:

    Very cool Marcus, the bleu is gorgeous! I'd love to see the larger dial printing too (no-date fever coming on again...)

    comparison is tricky! I bought it yesterday but left it behid at the AD.
    He is going to store it for me ........ don´t know when I´ll pick it up.
    Doesn´t matter anyway my arms are always full with tuna can and Deepsea ....... so no need to hurry! :lol:

    Will 14060Ms that do not have the parachrome bleu hair spring acquire an added value (not necessarily a monetary value) to collectors? After all, from here on out, we must expect that all Rolexes will have the bleu hairspring. The old style hairspring will become like a discontinued feature (?).

    I would doubt it makes much of a difference in terms of collectability, Mark...

    the M version, 4 liner with Parachrome will be the one with the smallest numbers of production.

    No matter what will be collectable or not I would always go for the inhouse Parachrome over the Swatch spring!

    So the Parachrom Bleu hairspring was already found in the M-series 14060M's? That's interesting! :thumbsup:
