    Dual-Time Aviator

    After many years, I finally took the plunge and purchased the Dual-Time Aviator.

    This is my first real automatic, and I couldn't be happier!

    Congrats on your decision and purchase! A very nice choice for your first auto. Well done! The Aviator Dual Time is one of my favorites... especially in the dark. I hope you continue to enjoy it for many years.

    Thanks!

    Using a sticky ball, I opened the caseback to take a look inside. Over the movement is a metal lid-like cover. I assume this is some type of anti-magnetic component, or shield?

    One of my favorites for function, looks and lume. Hopefully you have it sealed back to the proper torque. Never could do that with one of those ball tools.

    I used the three-pronged tool to make it just a little tighter than the ball could do.

    Here's a photo of the interior cover. So, is this indeed some type to anti-magnetic cover?

    Interesting but I would not show a opened watch that is in warranty on a website. Kind of is proof of you voiding the warranty. Engineer series watches have more shielding for magnetism as you show here. More interesting to me is the machine turn finish on the inside case back.
