  1. Trying to find someone who does caseback engraving? I remember several years ago jmb did engraving, however I don’t know if he is still around and whether he still offers engraving and milling services? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. I found someone who will take a look at my 382 that I dropped and has a few of the glued on decorative parts floating around. My question is should the watch smith find significant damage and a new movement is in order, which one of the several a7750 variants would be correct. I was looking at Startime supply’s online catalog, and they list probably a half dozen different configurations. Alternately, do any of the dealers sell movements that would be appropriate for this watch, with the decorative bits and such? Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. Hi guys I recently dropped my Bronzo 382. It ran for a couple of days then stopped. There are two parts ( looks like a small deco part and the top of the balance bridge are loose. Provably something else that’s jamming the movement. I need a watchsmith here in the USA that can repair or replace the a7750 movement. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Also while taking photos, I saw another part moving around. Is this part of the balance bridge? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Here are a few photos of the back of the watch. There is a loose part stuck to the back glass and one photo it looks like it’s blocking the rotor. What is this part? Obviously the watch will need to be opened up and repaired. Thanks Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Photos Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Thanks for the info Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That would be great if you could send me his name and phone number. Austin is just one state over from us. For years, I have used mymanmatt, who lives in Dallas. Unfortunately, Matt has been having a lot of health problems and he is no longer able to work on watches. In fact he recently sent back two watches that he told me that he just couldn’t work on. Thanks very much Arthur Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk I moderated the post with the personal information. Rather not have everyone seeing folks snails, addresses or phone numbers. Thanks again, hope you don’t mind what I did. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. I was able to find his email on another forum, thanks. I will contact him about a repair. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks for the info. I’m in the USA so strodda would be best for me. Is he a forum member here? Also do you have his contact info? Thanks very much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Looking for info from you real Panerai guys. A few days ago, I dropped my Bronzo on a wood floor while cleaning it. It worked for a while but today I noticed that it was not running, and the rotor was not spinning. Also while setting it I noticed what seemed like the movement was moving around. The crown works fine in all three positions. I was wondering who works on the A7750 movements? My old watch guy mymanmatt is no longer working on watches. I haven’t been active here for a while so sort of lost track of who is repairing watches. Thanks Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. David, I am so sorry for your dad’s passing.He was a great fellow and a real asset to the rep community. He and I shared a love of watches as well as vintage Land Rovers. You and your family are in my prayers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I believe that a lot of the SM300’s that come up on EBay are these Vietnam cased watches. They are gen spec and they all have Omega movements. They are pretty hard to tell from the genuine unless you are pretty darn knowledgeable about the vintage SM 300’s. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. @Robtb, please do not include personal information in your posts. That includes Name, addresses, phone numbers, email addresses. Use the PM system to contact other members. You may include as much information as you desire in PM’s, not in regular posts. This is for your own protection, as we have no control over who visits our forum. Most are good folks, but some may well be scammers and con artists as well. Thanks
  14. Just scanning thru EBay, sure seems like a good quality of high end Doxas, dials, bezels etc on EBay right now. Be very cautious, especially with parts. Bezels had very subtle design changes over the years. From the top, they all look identical, but from the bottom you can see the changes. Also beware of dials that have been “enhanced” with the Aqualung logo as well as the yellow dial Divemasters with the Poseidon logo added. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
