Jaeger-LeCoultre: There are a few pictures on this forum of black-dialed Quartermasters...

...here's Blomman's example now: But I suspect that you want something a little more "tangible". I've linked this thread over to another forum where you are a member. Someone over there found an auction listing for Gus Grissom's LeCoultre, which was sold about 10 years ago. So now we have 4 examples

Jaeger-LeCoultre: 1961 Life Magazine Cover - Alan Sheppard

Note the watch on Alan Sheppard's wrist in this cover photo. I think it is the same LeCoultre. At least the band looks the same. gatorcpa

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Serial number?

May I ask about the movement serial number? Mine is 1.3 million, which I think is very early for these. Thanks, gatorcpa

Jaeger-LeCoultre: New Arrival - JLC/Gübelin Ipso Vox Parking Dial

I was the successful bidder on this watch last week: When researching this piece, the only other examples of the Ipso Vox Parking were found on this site. So I would like to ask a couple of questions of the collective. First, I saw a picture of Ilja's example that had a dual signed caseback with the

Girard Perregaux: New Arrival - Chronometer Richeville

I was helping a fellow collector locate an affordable GP Gyromatic on that (in)famous auction site when this picture popped up on my screen: Having previously read Blomman's posts on this particular model, I got my sniper ready and loaded it up with what turned out to be the winning bid. It was a bi

Girard Perregaux: Incoming: Girard-Perregaux Chronometer

This one has come all the way from the land of Oz. Here's the "before" pictures from the seller: Movement is the high-beat (36K beats/hour) GP cal. 42.1: Has a soft iron inner cover and a unique inner case construction: There is an odd thing about the case, it has double lug holes. Never seen that b

Jaeger-LeCoultre: Can't tell from pictures...

...if outer dial is original. If there were lume dots at the 5 minute markers, then it probably is. But is it original to this watch? Black dials were relatively rare back then. Paired with silver inner dial? Just looks strange to me. Hands were certainly redone. IMO, this one is too risky. gatorcpa

Omega: Not sure I totally understand, but...

...I will try to see this objectively from both sides. First of all, I'm not ordinarily inclined to recommend Omega for service of vintage watches due to the extreme cost. However, for some rare and valuable models, they may be the only ones with access to parts. Certainly after 2015, that's going t

Omega: I have the part number for you...

crystal 063PZ5236 Plexiglas (weiß) The problem is that I don't think this these are avaliable with a gold trim ring anymore. As I stated above, your example is the only one of this reference I've ever seen in gold or gold plate. If your watchmaker has an Omega parts account, have him try "063P X 523
