    Really depends on the brand. Most are not but I do believe some are like Sinn or Damasko (I will confim this in a few months). Try using Chrono 24 to see euro prices.

    Yay! After-market bezel came for my old TAG-Heuer Professional 1000. It was $20. Nicey machined and printed and pressure fits perfectly. I can't tell the difference from the original (going off memory and photos). I love this watch and have had it for 25 years so I am glad to have it back in service.

    So I wanted to thank everyone for their advice on my dad's wedding thank you gift. I really appreciated it.

    So I ended up going with the IWC Mark XVII, as I got a huuuge discount from my usual AD and I didn't want to double my budget for the Milgauss. Nonetheless, I really like the Mark XVII and am excited to give it to my dad in a couple weeks.

    I will try and take some pics when he wears it -- fingers crossed he likes it.

    Thanks all.

    Quote:My vote is for the AP RO. I love Rolex watches and have a few, but I find the DJ II is a bloated homely version of the standard DJ. The bezel and case of the DJ look too bulbous. Go for a regular DJ or the AP RO (I love my RO...just look at a few of my recent posts.) Good luck.

    Hi guys,

    Not sure why my computer isn't letting me multi quote! Sorry for the multiple single posts.

    Dopey, glad to hear everything worked out for the bezel replacement. Wow, 25 years with a watch is pretty impressive. I think m y oldest is 19.


    DDDrees, thanks. Glad you enjoyed my post on the OQ/quartz movement.

    Thanks, gents. Just my clunky old Canon Rebel T1i (four years old!) but with a new lens: 100 macro / AV mode / f stop at 2.8 / ISO auto. Playing around with how close I can get to capture detail, depth, etc.

    It is not impossible, but usually Patek will do that for you during service time. And sometimes it will require a long trip to Geneva; Patek in NYC will not switch out all dials in the USA. I am really not sure you can do that with your AD before you purchase the piece.

    i'm planning on replacing an IWC portuguese, which I thought was a balance of dress & casual?

    +1 on the AP.

    I personally like the DJII, but the RO is in a completely different class.
