    Doesn't look anything like 1mm to me. I would say this is normal, as previously stated you won't get the same snug fit as a solid end link. Trying to improve the fit is a slippery slope, I've done it...

    Get it to a repairer, it isn`t like a grazed knee that'll heal up. There's obviously a problem and beyond the magnetised or snagged hairspring suggestions it's a waste of time speculating. I`m sure I...

    Sorry, but I do not believe an app on a phone can detect whether a watch has become magnetised. When a watch gets magnetised it's the hairspring that's affected, not the watch case! If someone can...

    I thought they were good too, Ozzy can still perform despite advancing years and a somewhat 'hectic' lifestyle over the years! Hearing him perform takes me back to my youth in the 70s.

    One word of advice to y'all.......LOCTITE! A tiny dab will prevent these mishaps, and a quick flash with a naked flame will soften it to allow the screws to be removed.

    Agreed. I`m making the assumption that the watch is a Rolex and I`ll speculate that the scratch is in a polished section of the case. If so it's an easy job to have it polished out or polish it out...

    Unlikely that the dial can be cleaned to an acceptable condition. Also possible that the movement is water- damaged.

    Having the dial refinished is probably the best option. Itís a few years since...

    A replacement dial is the easiest option, its worth asking Steinhart whether they can supply one but I think this unlikely. I tried to source a crystal seal and I found Steinhart to be most unhelpful...

    Classic cars are a totally different proposition, I own one so Iím fully aware of the pros and cons. I suspect classic values may struggle over the next few years, certainly canít see them going up.

    Definitely a rip-off. Its surprising how little gold is actually used in most gold watches. Vintage gold watches can be good value if you buy right and are happy with the smaller sizes.
