    I can't ID that from the top using my books or the advanced search on ranfft. If you can get the dial and hands off and take a picture of the dial side I should be able to ID it.

    That's the best thing, it is easy to remove essential things from a service list on vintage items if you call up and just be honest and nice.

    You can't easily check if it is or not without opening the watch. De magnetisers can be available cheaply but if used wrongly will make the watch worse. The decent de magnetisers like the Elma one...

    My noise cancelling headphones usually set themselves at 0.8bar when flying.

    This 0.2 bar difference isn't even remotely close to the vacuum pressure you would test a Rolex at for example. I...

    If the original tube is threaded you can use a reverse threaded tool to remove it if it isn't splined like modern Rolex tubes. Or if it won't come out broach it out.
    Then measure the size and work...

    Really depends, some of these work by just having a compression between the screen and contact board. This can be cleaned and that sometimes works.

    If it is a soldered link then it may need...

    Check the side profile of the part you have as one has a pinion and one doesn't. I would suspect it is the one with pinion you are missing based on the picture of the movement.

    Will be 72950 in the UK and will come in right hand drive. Pretty cool.

    Wonder how it would compare to an Audi R8 for fun weekend driving.

    In Rolex the seals are one use, you can use it more than...

    Also do the missile silo tour! It's a hell of a long drive out, but so worth it. Amazingly interesting and if you aren't already, it will put you off nuclear missiles for life.

    When was it last serviced?

    The reversers in these are not lubricated but have a surface treatment, oil moving to them, dirt, or oil on the pivots drying out can cause this issue.
