Doxa bezel paint does not tend to last

Omega: Depends on brand, back then tritium was used to excite the luminous material.

70s Doxas still glow a little bit same for the ploprof above, 80s-90s Rolexes were utterly dead in my experience.

Omega: Yup

It is the later dials with depth rating between Seamaster and Professional that bubble, serial number seems to be in the known Ploprof batches and EoA has been ordered :] I really like the bezel and case as well. Here is a UV shot.

Omega: Most of it is covered by the retaining ring, which is why the parts of dial peeled.

Here it is with cleaned ring on the dial: The crown is all good, if all works out it will be ready for scuba diving trip in September

Omega: Ploprof 600

Recently acquired an original 166.077, bit of a survivor from son of original owner, sadly it seems no one serviced it for a very long time and gasket turned to sludge, thought some of you would appreciate some pictures from my watchmaker! Condition on arrival: Notice the sludge covered crown Everyt

Jaeger-LeCoultre: The rotor

Does anyone know if the new rotor is gold or just plated? Compared to older design that had 22ct riveted weight.

Horological Meandering: Some photos from their HQ in Nové Město nad Metují

They have several suppliers for various components and watches are completed in their HQ. Majority of watches are custom orders, so for example car at bottom of chronograph second hand is not a problem as illustrated bellow. Holes in the dial are drilled one by one if I remember.
