    In that case, wouldn't it be more helpful than potentially harmful to any diligent prospective buyers for real owners to post their full serial numbers (without pictures)?

    Actually, I don't think so.

    I've seen many cases of people falling for the trick of someone posting on one forum with a name plucked from another and selling a watch they allegedly own while referring to "their posts" in the old forum. Then they will come up with some story that they've been banned from the previous board, and in their haste to score a good deal many buyers will not bother to check that story. Keeping complete serial numbers confidential forces the scammer to come up with more details, like photos that he obviously won't have. I'm not saying that this is foolproof, but it certainly doesn't hurt to play it safe.

    In any case, the advice to buyers is always the same: do your bloody homework!

    Not necessarily "wrong", as it appears that several of these watches were shipped with an accented bezel. Mine is one, but I have seen at least half a dozen others. Since most service bezels are of a similar design, my personal guess is that they are from a second production batch and part of latter made it to some the production watches. But it is definitely a fact that most Grails don't have the accent on "TACHYMETRE"...

    George, is it a given that if you do find a NOS dial, the lume will still be shot just by virtue of age? And is it chronological age or cumulative exposure to light, meaning one that's been in the dark could still have life in it? (Thanks in advance.)

    Does anyone know the Omega part numbers for the correct crystal replacement, and 376.0822 dial.

    I recall seeing a picture of an Omega crystal in modern packaging with part number and bar code.

    I guess the replacement dials pre-date Omega's bubble-pack packaging, so perhaps they have a different part number coding.

    Still, if anyone knows the part numbers please post them up - if only for reference purposes in the thread.

    Thanks all!

    Thanks Pascal! That is for the crystal.

    Do you happen to know a part number or reference for the (unobtainable, correct) dial?
