    Taking the 6039-7040 plunge

    Bought from Mountapo just now. Yes I know its not original dial etc but I wanted a nicely finished case...the cushion is the best part. Loys didn't have any for sale and was getting impatient so......

    Very nice. I have a mountapo too. Actually I bought another 6309 with original everything and swapped it into a mountapo case, so i have a nice refinished case (well the back still looks like hell) with an original dial and aged hands.

    Niiiice.

    I noticed the other day, that Mountapo had one piece listed with the original dial. Is this the one?

    Judging from the picture, no.

    No, he had a 7049 that looked very similar but original crystal and slightly more expensive. I liked this one as the inside of the case back looked cleaner. Apparently the 7049 is a bit rarer so a bit more expensive. Same thing just for a different market so wasn't going to fuss about that.

    That's the thing... sometimes it's hard to tell from the picture. This, apparently, is the one which sold with an original dial:

    Yes, one of the Philippines sellers. Along with Loyswatch, seems to be one of the reliable sellers.

    Does Loyswatch really service the watches as he claims, or is it better to send them to a watchmaker to service them again before using?
