  1. Is the glass removable? If so, have you considered asking a local opticians shop if they’d polish it for you? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I’d recommend taking it to a jewelers to ask about gold solder. Epoxy could be messy and usually ends up where you don’t want it. Beautiful watch and worth doing properly IMO... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. I’d recommend posting your pics here https://omegaforums.net/forums/vintage-omega-watches-help-discussion-and-advice.23/ There are reference specific experts there... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. In 1976, lume material would have been tritium and phosphorus. But then I believe the dial at 6 o’clock would have been marked T Swiss T. Is that UV light in the third pic that makes it look purple? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’d recommend taking these pics over to VRF for mor authorative feedback... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. It’s a ref 4127, early bubbleback (pre-Oyster)... I’d hazard a guess and say, early 1940s. Edit: https://www.coolvintagewatches.com/rolex/r13 Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The first lesson is to avoid fashion watches. They’re really not made to last. The next is to save for something a little more robust. Perhaps a tool watch designed for harsh conditions. The G Shock is a start. What’s wrong with the hands? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Wow, that's quite a website! Thanks for the link!
  10. Think I’ve just found a set that will work nicely. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thanks for the links. I’m open to AM. My challenge is that I don’t want a set that’s brand new looking. The dial is from the 1950s so I’m looking for alpha or dauphine which I believe is correct for the period. Preferred with a lume strip... It’s a bit of a tall order so I guess I’ll have to be patient and keep my eyes peeled. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I'm looking for used, gold colored, alpha-style hands for a 1956 Oysterdate (ref 6494 / cal. 1225). They don’t need to be OEM. I’ve been watching EBay for months with nothing suitable. I’ve posted a WTB on VRF with no luck... I would have thought these would be pretty common. Am I looking in the wrong places? Can anyone recommend any other places I could try? Thanks
  13. The auto rotor is enough to keep it running while you’re moving but seldom enough it actually charge it, unless you’re very active during the day. All my autos require winding once a week... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
