    I think the add on value or premium depends on who did the engraving and why. Clearly we all know about Comex and Milsubs and the prices that they fetch, but they were issued watches to be worn by...

    Agreed. Scratches on the underside of the lugs is a pet hate of mine, even heavy micro scratches these days would stop me buying a watch unless it was vintage and they blended in with the rest of the...

    I would imagine that you are pushing a fair level of stress through the watch with each blow. Probably got sod all to do with your problem, but I would be inclined to take the Watch off before...
