  1. Depending on the condition of the watch, for sure. I've scoured the planet for a two-line chapter ring dial which would be correct for my 557XXX serial number.
  2. That damn dial is the difference between my PCG being worth $25k+ instead of $12k. Sigh.
  3. Here's a pic of my '61 5512 for reference. Sadly not the original dial - was replaced with one from '67 at some point in its life.
  4. Happy Birthday Virgil Hilts!

  5. Happy Birthday Virgil Hilts!

  6. You just apply a small amount to the crystal, then rub pretty hard with a clean cloth. Takes awhile, but the scratches disappear completely. Used it on my 1676 and 5512, too. Works like a charm.
  7. Not a chance, Rene. MJC, I dinged up my plexi within hours of putting it on. A little Polywatch and, viola, it's good as new. Been wearing this non-stop for a week. New favorite watch.
  8. Holy Crap! An extra plexi? I had no idea! Thanks for the heads (or, rather, bottoms) up!
  9. A little something I just got in the mail today.
  10. Sorry for the bad/dusty shots. Man, I love this thing. Have a great weekend, everyone.
  11. GENuninely jealous. Gorgeous.
  12. Thanks for the tip. I'll probably just have Zig service the A7753 and see how she runs...while letting someone else be the Valjoux pioneer.
  13. What? I gave my review, too. Seriously, it's really nice. Huge, but doesn't feel too bulky. I'll take some more pics this weekend at the EAA Fly-In in Oshkosh. Gonna have Zig service the movement (possibly throw a gen 7753 in there) and maybe lighten the shade of lume on the main hands to look more gen-like. Anyone have any other suggestions on possible mods?
