Susan,

I thought of you when I saw this one on the shelf. The jump hour alarm clock.
Crazy! Thanks for giving me a look!

Re: Vintage Rolex GMT Master

Hi Patrick:

Per forum rules, all "for sale" items must include a price. Please add a price so that this listing won't have to be removed, thanks.

Re: Omega crown or other brand ?

Caravelle has over the years used logo variations of the "C" on their crowns that sometimes come close to looking like Omegas.

Here is a lot of "Caravelle" crowns from eBay: Notice the Omega hiding in there?

Odyssee Redial?

Anyone ever had a first generation Odyssee dial redone?

It is a two-part dial (sandwiched together) — can the parts be separated and the base be reprinted and re-lumed?

the back is silver colored on a gold frame, telling me this one come apart from behind. Logically i would reason the crystal installs from behind also.
I believe I have seen one-piece cases with stainless backs and gold colored bezels, not quite sure. . . .

Watch repair isn't my hobby, but I have worked on enough camera shutters to be able to handle this.
I admire your confidence. :lol:

Re: Custom Ardmore

Apparently watch engraving is now a "thing", LOL.

Mark, it looks like your guy is doing excellent, fine work. Here is a Hamilton from another engraver whose work is nowhere near as exquisite, for comparison:
