    Vintage Sub 300t update

    So, I FINALLY got the watch back after having it serviced at my local Rolex AD. I had the movement overhauled and the bezel fixed (it was missing the rachet spring). I can't be happier with the watch. It has been keeping darn near spot on time for the 36 hours I have had it back.

    I have already started removing the bezel paint to repaint myself as seen in the picture. I will post a new picture after I apply new paint this evening.

    Again, you will notice the lume is missing at a few of the hour marks and is starting to chip on the hour hand. Next up will be a new crystal and lume of the dial.

    I have a feeling after this watch a modern Doxa might be in my future!

    It was $250 including the price to make the bezel ratchet spring. I would imagine others do as well but he also warranties the work for a year. What I still can't get over is how accurate it is running!

    I will hopefully get up some high quality photos soon with some of my other non Doxa watches.

    I would say that if he had to fabricate the bezel spring, then I think you did pretty good for $250 for a service. Congrats!! That is a great watch IMHO.

    Yes they had to fabricate the spring. Wow, wow, wow. I painted the bezel and just removed all the excess paint. I can't believe how great it came out!! Super easy thanks Dr. Peter Millars website.
