  1. I know ... so this weekend I'll measure HOW LONG the indices are on a 6917 dial ... probably shorter but who knows ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  2. I have a 6917 dial somewhere ... This weekend I'll check howling the indices are ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  3. Unfortunately that dial is for a 6917 DJ ... ladies size ... - case diameter is 26mm - dial diameter is about 20.3mm So it won't fit a 34mm DJ case ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  4. Hi and welcome to this forum ... There's a seller in Italy who sells a complete set of 18K indexes for €95 shipped ... https://www.ebay.fr/itm/ORIGINAL-ROLEX-18-K-INDEX-6694-QUADRANTE-DIAL-CADRAN-PART-PARTS-PRECISION/153459401161 The indexes are probably too short as they come from a Precision who is 34mm only but who knows ? You still can contact the seller to check the size are the indexes and which is the distance between the pins ... If those dimensions are OK you could clean everything, paint the indexes with 2 thin coats of white nail lacquer and change the all set ...
  5. That one is more than decent so congrats ... but what would be really interesting is that you tell us more about the method you use ? Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  6. 15 scds a day is 7.5 mns a month and 1.5 h a year so not that bad IMHO ... set your watch once a week and live with that ... About the stucked springbar what I would do is : - remove the one that isn't stucked - source a pair of identical new springbars - remove the stucked one with force ... no matter if it brakes it as new springbars will be used - clean the case between the lugs - put the new bracelet on with the new springbars - enjoy Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  7. What is too good to be true is NOT true ... If I had an original dial made for a rare 2914 Railmaster ... a watch that sells around 13K$ ... I would definitely NOT sell it for $85 ... Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  8. Looking at your pics (though blurry) I would say 100% original ... 1 - no marker on the insert below 60 ... some aftermarket inserts have one but I've never seen an original insert with a marker at 60 2 - 1m, markers much thinner than 5mn markers ... on 80% of aftermarket inserts all markers have the same thickness 3 - numbers about the same thickness than 5mn markers (so larger than the 1mn markers) ... typically original IMHO I have no idea about the dimple between 75 and 80 but who cares ?
  9. Never worked on a Pogue but most Seiko inserts are press-fit. What I would do is to remove the bezel ring first then pop the insert off pushing from the "inside" of the bezel. Then press the new insert in using a crystal press with nylon dies and press the bezel back on. But that's only "what I would do" on "my watch" of course ... proceed as you feel it and at your own risk [emoji6] Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk

  11. @carlos123 ... considering the really good condition of both watch and dial I would put an aftermarket one ... $15 only on eBay https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.com%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F223245146447 Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  12. @AndyHull ... On all dials or dial plates I've worked on the registration pin sitted at 3:00 You can check that looking at a dial with a date window Envoyé de mon moto g(7) power en utilisant Tapatalk
  13. Hi @Chopin and thanks I've never lumed that dial as it was only a test ... since then I've bought a Heuer 980.016 case but I still have to refurbish it (it's a really beaten one) and source a smaller blank dial with the accurate date window in the right place ... About dials with metallic markers ... I've done some a few years ago and YES it's easier to remove the markers before applying the decal. And about the holes on the center and date window I cut them with an xActo after the decal is perfectly dried and before applying the final varnisg finish. To be 100% honest I confront the limitations of that decal method more and more every day and I'm really thinking about switching to pad-print method in a near future
  14. Stepped bezel like the one on that Alpina ? I've talked to my friend and he say he can turn a custom bezel (don't know about a stepped one but I would say he can). He's not a member here but I'll PM you his name and email adress so that you can talk directly with him and see if you can find an agreement. And YES you will have to source and fit a plexi first as the internal diameter of the bezel (and its height too) will depend on that. Have a nice day ...
