Nothin but the best. Hes a bit slow and he doesn't talk much, but he was able to dive right into the watch. Literally.

I can see why you can't sleep. I'd be losing sleep too, but I'm sure the watchmaker is taking really good care of it.

The biggest chunk of that is the new 93150 bracelet.

Expensive? Perhaps. But I must say DW72 that in light of what you'll wind up with in the end, this is chicken feed. This is not even mentioning the fact you are getting an heiloom with a helluva history and story to go with it. I can't wait to see the end results.

I can't wait either. I'll take pictures starting with the mailman. I need his mugshot anyway, just in case.

And everyone said I was paranoid about the mailman! Did you read about that '93' Sub that was stolen from DBS91274? The thread is in the "Watch Out" section of TRF. This is some scary stuff.

I have been told that the watch has been completed. Now all I have to do is wait for the USPS to feed their pony's and trot it on over.

I can now tell you that I sent my watch the the New York RSC. They have completed the watch and its now on its way back home. I didn't want to say where I sent it off to until I asked if they had an issue with posting the information online. I know its my decision but I felt obligated because they were so helful and kind to service the watch. I didn't want them receiving phone calls asking why they refused service to others and why they serviced me. They didn't consider my watch vintage because of the history of service and when it was last serviced. My dial and hands are in great condition so this didn't prevent them from servicing. I had no aftermarket parts on the watch. The parts that I needed were available to them. If you have an older watch I suggest you call them and explain the situation to them. There is no guarantee of service and each case is unique. Don't expect service based on the fact that I had mine serviced. They changed the crown, tube, and crystal along with the inital service all for $555. The bezel was $255 and the bracelet was $825. They gave me a trade in price on the bracelet and told me I could keep my old bracelet which was very kind. All my service was done right there in the NYC center and wasn't sent elsewhere.

On an additional note, I asked the supervisor who had been helping with the watch service for her thoughts on how the watch turned out. She said it looks brand new. Awesome, just awesome.

First, congratulations on completion of the work.... I can not wait to see the final result!!

I am really surprised they chose to service your watch in NY. But as you said each case is different and people should not expect them to service other vintage pieces (unfortunately).

Again, I look forward to your pics!

If I post high quality pictures they might be hijacked by someone online and then used to scam people into buying a bogus watch. I have seen this happen with other pictures online. I would hate to think that a picture of my watch was used to scam anyone. Any thoughts?

IMHO your to paranoid about it but thats my opinion.If you dont have photoshop or a good program write your name or something on a sheet of paper and cover a portion of the watch when you take a picture.Or even better get a close up of your face and put it in the corner of the pic and write this watch belongs to me dont borrow my pics.I have seen it done before. That way somebody doesnt borrow them and cause you or others any grief.

I don't want to scare anyone, just stop them from stealing the pic.

I will figure out how to put on a watermark somehow. I am playing around with a picture on MS Word right now.

And I don't think I am being paranoid at all. I am being careful. The internet is a hostile place. If you look on the Watchout section of this forum you will see hijacked pictures all over the place.

While this has happened before this is a watch forum and we share pics,advice,ideas etc if you dont want to post pics this is your choice.If someone is looking for pics to defraud there are millions of them on the net.
