'Spensive!The one I'm thinking of getting has a gold back and a real sapphire cabochon. The less expensive Tank Solo XL appears very similar but does not have those things.
Camille Fournet. I had a bad experience with ABP.
What color strap on the rose gold Tank? Navy Bottle Green
More pics:The dial has a very, very subtle pearly, parchment tinted sheen.
Blah blah blahNow help me pick a watch. Cartier Tank LC Extra Flat or Panerai 372?
You'll need to post before and after pics!Some manufacturers will not give you back original parts if they replace them, for fear of fueling the counterfeit market.

Or will it just be yet another of the...

You have a significant vintage watch with all genuine, untouched parts. Replacing the crystal will not harm value, but replacing virtually anything else will. Take a look at what happens to vintage Rolex Submariner prices when it turns out the dial is a factory replacement dial. Or IWC Mark XI prices when the lume has been...
