....pretty much my reaction awhen un wrapping a nice packet from bonhams, must have lost my senses at that auction, mental note dont do that again.... the bracelet, the MOD green re-lume, the scarring, she'll kill me when i show her this happy.gif

quick think on your feet man, take the bracelet off and spend an hour on that crystal and get a bezel pearl in, she'll not notice it's new, she'll think its one of your old ones....................

nahh still cant see for scars on that glass, she'll tell for sure, quick another hour or two of rubbing and lets get some of that debris out from under it and loose some of the gunk.....

bollocks, how could she miss those green power plant hands ..... if only there was a spare set of originals lying around the house, and a friendly AD open late with a whole work bench......

'whats was that dear', ' big whole in the bank account, no sorry don't know what you are talking about ....' its ages since i bought a new watch happy.gifhappy.gifhappy.gif

Don't worry, mate, I'll take that lump of lead off you... and I'm not referring to the old bracelet!

I will try your tactis in the future, and if my wifte catches me doing it, I will simply refer to the "genius" on VRF.
The watch looks absolutely fantastic!
Congratulations and wear it in good health.

good one, for a Vintage Rolex Mastercard commercial (guess you have live in the US to know it..)

Taking of an ugly bracelet. Zero Dollars!
Polishing the crystal. Zero Dollars!
Having a spare set of Gladiator Hands!
Priceless!!!



Enjoy!
