    How did it happen?
  5. Gen Navitimer crown fallen off

    Is the stem broken inside the crown? If not, it's a very easy fix - remove the caseback - extract the stem from the movement - reattach the crown to the stem using some thread lock Anyway, in the meantime just leave the watch in a closed box to prevent some dust to go inside

  8. Fixing misaligned DWO

    They are in brass or copper, so a soft metal. I used a square rat-tail file, kept parallel to the dial back surface, and some care. The file comes from a set like this: Thanks, extreme care is definitely needed :D
  9. Fixing misaligned DWO

    Very interesting write up. I have one question though, how did you thin the dial feet? They are super fragile and easy to break. :( "refiling the dial feet has been enough to center the dial" Thanks!

    If you send it to China be prepared to wait several months. I would consider a local watchmaker + a discount from Toro on your next purchase
  14. PO or Smp? Did you check ebay for gen parts?
  15. 2 completely different watches, hard to choose I would take the discontinued Aquatimer, as Daywatch suggested
