Omega: If my watch has a...

If my watch has a redial, which I'm not to sure of and I have the watch in front of me, then it is so, that I can live with that fact ;)

Horological Meandering: Well replied

I quite agree with you, there were good and bad on ALL sides...and as to the watch, you should get the lower pusher redone by your loved one, as the rumour says ;) I had to do my own with nail varnish, as my loved one would have painted all of it :)

Omega: Reviving a Cal 911 Flightmaster

I recently bought this watch at Bonhams auction house, London-England. The watch looked desperate, to put it mildly, but I had read of a guy called Rocco, who runs a firm called Watchworks.

Vacheron Constantin: I just had that same watch delivered!

Looks like I fell for the oldest trick, bad pictures and not looking properly. I´ve just bought that watch! The seconds hand has been replaced in the meantime. It´s clearly not as stated, a Vacheron & Constantin watch! Vacheron & Constantin 250968073590 Regards
