Need a Locke replacement dial

#1 Post by Gabe » Tue Jul 31, 2018 7:11 am

Please let me know.

I'm hoping someone on the forum has managed to squirrel away one in decent shape.

I just mistakenly let one get away for cheap in an eBay bulk lot but so it goes.

If whomever snagged that lot is here and you might possibly part with this one, please let me know.

or maybe not?

I'll have to get my watch guy to take the bezel off so I can measure the dial that's there.

THANK YOU SO MUCH for trying to help, though.

This is what the watch looks like now:

Haha, I’m the one that got that lot.
That’s not a Locke; it’s a generic case.

Too funny!

Please take the bezel off, so we can see the pattern underneath of the dial for sure.

Guessing would be a mistake... there are several possibilities.

Honestly, it really doesn't look so bad in hand.

I think I just need a new case and to figure out how to clean up that dial.

I'd have to figure out what case that should be.

Thank you, Pedro. It certainly looks like it.

Do you think it could also be an Atlantic?

Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.
