    [–] [Vacheron Constantin] Need some help identifying this overseas model IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    If it is a real tourbillon (that big thing at 12), it should rotate as it ticks. You can't miss it. Just search for a video of vacheron constantin tourbillon.

    Can your friend drop 400k on a watch?

    Aftermarket gaskets from VTA are an exact match for the original OEM gasket. Buy them with absolute confidence.... r/http://r.ebay.com/t7TGiL

    The gaskets are all different, but you can still buy them now. On the seiko watchmaking forum (thewatchsite) we had them (crown, caseback and bezel gaskets) remade to the original manufacturers spec. I think I have about 100 of each. Adrian from VTA sells them as a complete set. r/http://r.ebay.com/t7TGiL

    I think you need to find a spot with more light and the autofocus button on the potato you used to take that photo. Oh

    [–] [Sinn] 103 Replacing springbars IMeasure 1 points ago in Watches

    Springbars come in many different diameters. 1mm, 1.5mm, 1.78mm, 2mm and 2.5mm to name a few. If you have original oem springbars you want to get the same size and diameter.

    So the submerged watch with the case back removed is placed in the vacuum chamber?

    My dad made one of these mods to our station wagon. We all referred to it as the Back Back Seat.

    Cool.

    But I can't get into those fat lugs.

    [–] [Melbourne Watch Company] Carlton IMeasure 6 points ago in Watches

    In the 90s I use to live in Carlton St, Carlton, Melbourne. It looked nothing like this watch. Julian Assange use to turn up to our parties every now and again. Oh yeah, nice watch.

    [–] [Vintage Seiko 5, 7019A Movement] Ramen and a Seiko IMeasure 10 points ago in Watches

    It's a fako. Some seiko parts from here, some seiko parts from there and a fake dial and hands. It's a good gateway drug.

    [–] [Identify] Seiko 5 bought in Vietnam IMeasure 2 points ago in Watches

    What are the 8 digits on the back of the watch. It will be in the format XXXX-XXXX.

    [–] [SOTC] new grail added to the collection IMeasure 3 points ago in Watches

    Unless the hands have been relumed they are most probably radium. If the watch has spent a lot of time actually working the burn will be evenly spread. If the hands sit idle for years you will get hotspots.

    [–] [SOTC] new grail added to the collection IMeasure 11 points ago in Watches

    Nice set of watches. If I had to guess I would say the gold patina on the tudor dial is radium burn.

    [–] [Identify] Vintage Omega inherited from my Grandfather IMeasure 3 points ago in Watches

    As you have gathered this is most probably an amazing piece of history. Have the guys at omegaforums.net been any help? As for insurance you should be able to have it added to your home and contents. The tricky bit is having it authenticated and valued. Do you have an Omega boutique in your city? If they have an onsite watchmaker they should be able to remove the caseback, record all the details inside and have omega Switzerland provide an "extract of records". Once you know exactly what it is you can then find a specialist to value the watch. If you are in the USA, there is the American Society of Appraisers.
