Per my previous post, any recommendations for reputable sources for a watch from 1965 (my birth year)? Thinking Rolex or Omega. Thanks!
Yeah, I think the dial is a replacement. I think I will pass.

I have used up to 18g in the Panama Mill I linked to. I don't use it for coarse grind, so I can't comment. I only use it for Chemex or Aeropress.
Go with the Zass. Much more stable and consistent grind size.
