Okay guys this is a nice 7009-8089 that I did a service to. Hope it stays running better then before I did the service. I still need to straighten out a few things. Anyway I like this watch, and found and bought a better example, so now I have two. This one has "Patina'd" unevenly and has gone funky brown around the markers. That makes it a candidate for a "mod". Seems all the dials out there are for Divers and that might be kind of cool in this style case even though its not a diver. I might as well change up the hands too.
So for confirmation and dial with the correct diameter 28.2 with a stem at 4 (28 minute mark actually) and day date at 3 should line up in the 7XXX movements. I put a different dial on a 7s26 and since it only showed the date in the window the day is just hidden.
So does anyone have any suggestions, where to get one, what might look neat? My photos are pretty bad and the crystal doesn't help much but they should give and idea. Oh and a crystals on its way.
Old crystal is no longer an issue, I tried for the first time tonight to remove one and replace. The removal ended in a thousand pieces but its out...I may have to rethink that end of watch repair. I fit a flat disc the was just small enough to fit the ID of the case, supported the front around the bezel with one about the same size? Used constant force until it "POPPED!". I have several that need replacing so we'll see what happens>
As for the dials. like I mentioned many seem to be for divers, and even those that are a bit different, they'll have 200m or some such detail. I guess I'm just looking for something sterile and other than black..
A different case but this is likely how yours originally looked...
ANZAC57(Tony) gave me this one
I have a much cleaner version of mine and yes almost identical to yours. I guess I have become accustom to markers over numerals, not that their bad, heck I did buy another. I have several Numeral Dials in the box at this point, I just thought about changing it up a bit and was looking for some suggestions since the dial is in poor shape from a staining stand point.
