I know the placement of the subdials can be moved.... so that wouldnt be a telling sign. I wish i was as familiar with the 7751 as i am with the 7750.

Hard to work on? I might be able to pick this one up for around 1K or so, if I am lucky. Stainless steel rather than gold, which is a plus for me. Tiny though, at 35mm. Good dress chrono.post #19533 of 483124/1/13 at 9:04ampost #19534 of 483124/1/13 at 9:06amQuote:
id have no problem buying at that price. any watch maker can work on those movements...pretty much the standard movement they learn on. Keep us posted if you buy it..id love to see some more pics.post #19535 of 483124/1/13 at 9:08amUpdate on my watch strap search for my 70+ year old H. Moser & Cie.
I received a reply back from Camile Fournet, who said that the only way they would be able to make a strap for the fixed lugs of my watch would be to have me send the watch to them. They would then sew the strap directly onto the watch.
Seeing as how the watch is irreplaceable, I am not comfortable with the prospect of sending it across the world, even if it means that it may get excellent treatment at CF.
So, I'm back to square one...post #19536 of 483124/1/13 at 9:09amQuote:

I have seen some straps that glue in place... and then maybe a watch repair shop (higher end) may be able to put a few stitches through the strap? Just haven't seen anything of quality in that kind of attachment option.
Here is the watch:post #19540 of 483124/1/13 at 9:20amQuote:
you know what you MAY be able to do? d take it to a cobbler.
When i was into panerais, i bought a shitton of strap making supplies and made a few straps. One of my favorite OEM straps ripped and i just stitched it up myself. Its not too hard, and may be worth trying out.post #19541 of 483124/1/13 at 10:17ampost #19542 of 483124/1/13 at 10:22amCF said "this is the only way" - meaning, to send in my watch. I'll see what they say, if anything, to my reply that I already sent (lamenting my hesitation to send my watch across the globe). Perhaps they'll offer your option...
Does Bee make watch straps?post #19543 of 483124/1/13 at 10:26amQuote:Originally Posted by no frills
As for availability, IMHO NYC is generally not a true measure of availability of a watch. NYC is well known for lots of watch shops: ADs; boutiques; gray market; and vintage shops. It also probably per capita has more people buying high end watches than other cities in the States. Hence ADs there generally sell out of more popular Rolex, Pateks, Pams etc faster than in other parts of the country. I always find NYC is a blast when it comes to doing watch window shopping, however, I've always found availability and prices (on new pieces) to be better almost anyplace else. Hence, I think if the OP visited or called some ADs outside of NYC regarding a new Nautilus he would probably find one or have a relatively short wait.
The Stern interview is entertaining, but I usually take those interviews with a grain of salt. The stuff he says about the Nautilus is nice but it reads like sales talk intended to help bolster sales. It doesn't take away from the watch's beauty or desirability, but they are available if one shops around.
P.S. I've also noticed some issues with my paragraphs not separating in some posts.post #19544 of 483124/1/13 at 10:39amQuote:
Yeah, I'd be worried about long term serviceability of the Universal Geneve. Parts are getting scarce, though they are available. I'm working on a Universal Geneve 281 and it's been problematic. There are some parts I need to replace, but can't, like the barrel and the center wheel is wearing into the main plate so it's going to need a bushing and some extra work. It's going to be costly to service for sure. Sure is a looker though.
