  1. Hi, I have a GMT Master II 16710 that was damaged beyond repair (at least the case was) but the 3186 movement appears to be salvageable. I can't seem to find any 16710 cases to buy for the movement (even aftermarket ones) so, despite the fact I have a dislike for replicas, I wondered whether a case from a half-decent one might do the job. Some rudimentary on-line research (looking at photos) seems to indicate that it could fit but it may need different size clamps. Can anyone offer any advice at all please, or know anyone who could assist? Thanks in advance.
  2. Hi, I have a Cartier chronoscaph watch in my collection which I would like to tidy up and get it looking as good as new. The only part of it (really) that could do with a polish is the bezel. When I took it into a local jewellers he said that he couldn't polish it as it may affect/rub out the Roman numerals enscribed around it. I have since purchased a spare bezel but he said he cannot fit it because it needs a special Cartier tool to remove the existing one. Long story but I'm not sending it to Cartier to resolve so does anyone know of anywhere that could do such a job? Any
  3. Many thanks for taking the time to provide such excellent advice. As you say, I was concerned about ruining the movement and its history, but I also want to make full use of it somehow (in order to fully appreciate its worth). I could sit and listen to its beautiful ticking all day (but I guess I'm sad like that!).
  4. Thanks for your replies. I'm still trying to work out how to attach photos but the movement is pretty much the same as the one I've linked from eBay. All I need to do is figure out how to remove the dial and stem and also ascertain which hands will fit the movement. Ok, maybe the link didn't work either!
  5. Hi all, Apologies, I'm new to this forum and I have done my very best to search for threads that relate to my query but to no avail. I'm fascinated with all kinds of watches and, although I have a few modern Tags and Omegas, I really do love the workings of a mechanical vintage watch. On that note, I have an old Tudor ladies' movement that I'm loathed to throw away or have sitting in a drawer somewhere, so wondered if anyone knew whether it could be put to use? I'm a male so would obviously want it fitted into a men's case but is this possible? I'm guessing i
