Good grief, when the 6767 won't do - go straight to the grinder...
No. No need for this - perhaps someone put shoulderless spring-bars in or something and made a hash getting them out again.
I imagine as cause, a before installed wrong (Rolex ?) pin without shoulder, or too long pin, which the service could not remove in another way as to grind the end link?
but I remember have seen it also on other watches.
My other HG , never serviced ( is nearly unworn with red seal and blue wachs on the back,) here it is no problem to remove the bracelet. The original pins are ok.
You have two of these? Lucky man!
Would you care to share some photos of that fine pair?
with my first one I had not only the luck to get her, but also the bad luck that her state for me excludes to wear her .
For to wear she had to go to service, not only not to know which service I can trust, also seal would be broken.
Therfore she must live without. I have forgotten to bring the orginal box from bank safe, so you see the box from the second one.
hence, I had to find a second one to wear. indeed, this has service hands, but, however, so far I can judge it, dial , bezel and bracelet orginal. perhaps I will find some original hands, but it doesn't bother me at the time.
Wow! Let me know if you get tired of either of them.
It's a pity the second one inherited the incorrect service hands, but I confirm that both dial and bezel are original for this watch. As for the first one, I'm just speechless...
Thanks a lot for sharing!
thanks again to Pascal for the clear answers, i would ask to other Grail's owners, what it the best stell band to replace the 1450.
My intention is to took off it to conserve and replace with 1479/812, 1171/633 or others suitable, the problem is decide which in particular referring to the end links adaptibility to the Grail case.
Thanks in advance.
