  1. Thank you Mike! I hope all is well with you.
  2. It looks photoshopped to me. Ask him to send you another picture of it with the watch set to a specific time and date.
  3. Someone else will need to confirm, but I think all the gen spec Rolex dials have their date windows at the same distance from the dial center. Some of the non-spec dials have their date window closer to the center of the watch. The demand for a date overlay for a non-spec dial probably isn't that great.
  4. I'd like to add to this wish list, even though it has nothing to do with these early subs. Can you make an open 6&9 date wheel overlay? Maybe one withe round 3's and one with flat 3's and have the numbers progress in the direction of an ETA movement? I think there would be a demand for these.
  5. Would using silicone grease at the base of the lip provide a barrier against moisture and oxygen getting in and creating more corrosion?
  6. uh oh...hour hand doesn't look so good
  7. Have you tried again to order from Startime?
